In the course of the acquisition of a second language, students are often advised to read extensively in order to improve their skills. However, reading can be a challenging task for L2 learners as they can come across many obstacles and do not adopt certain reading strategies that are deemed crucial for developing literacy skills and a level of proficiency within that language. Verrote suggests that alternative text-based assignments that focus on interaction rather than reading offer students encouraging methods to improve their literacy skills. She concludes her statements with a series of examples of interactive textbased tasks that are stimulating to students.
