13 pagesDate: September 21, 2020


This study aims at finding out what problems EQuest Academy (EQ) students had in the learning to prepare for TOEIC reading comprehension. 90 students of TOEIC class and 15 instructors in charge of TOEIC courses were taken data in the questionnaires and semi-structured interviews. The findings reveal vocabulary was the biggest hindrance by EQ students in reading comprehension. Therefore, the students had big problems with skills relating to guessing new words in the contexts. Furthermore, complex structures constrained the students to read passages effectively. Based on the results of the study, some suggestions are hopefully made to help students and instructors succeed in the learning and teaching of TOEIC reading comprehension.
