Abstract

Muhammad Shomdani, 14121310324. “Exploring EFL Learners in Reading Narrative Text: A Case Study at IAIN Syekh Nurjati Cirebon” Fluency is as a complex notion for reading as same as it is complex for speaking and writing. Reading fluency becomes an interest and crucial issue becuase it cannot be separated in decoding word per word and comprehending the text. Based on the phenomenon, the aims of the research is to describe how EFL learners demonstrate their reading fluency in narrative text, to identify reading strategies that are used by fluent reader in reading narrative text, and to identify the difficulties of EFL learners’ fluency to become a better reader in reading narrative text. This research based on Rasinski, Grabe, and Stoller theory. The method which is used in this research is qualitative research. The population in this research is four students from the English Language Teaching Department Tarbiyah and Teacher Training Faculty Syekh Nurjati State Islamic Institute Cirebon, they are Uswatun, Mahatir, Lusi, and Eka. They are as the informants in this reasearch. The techniques of collecting data that the writer used are depth-observation, depthinterview, questionaire, and document analysis to know about EFL learners’ fluency in reading narrative text on fourth semester students. The result shows that EFL learners demonstrated their reading fluency in narrative text with expression and volume (EV), where reviewed their reading sounds like natural language and volume is audible; phrasing (P1), they did mixture of mid-phrase pausing for breath, some reasonable stress and intonation; smoothness (S), they did occasional break in the smoothness the caused by specific words; pace (P2), R1 and R2 are doing consistently paced at the time of reading, while R3 and R4 are doing uneven pace; some passages fast, others slow while reading a narrative text. Reading strategies were used by EFL learners in reading narrative text are in a global reading strategies are identifying goals for reading, previewing, predicting, checking predictions, forming questions, answering questions, connecting text to background knowledge, paying attention to text to another, making inferences, creating mental images, guessing meaning from context, and critiquing the author or text. In monitoring reading strategies are monitoring the main idea comprehension, identifying difficulties, taking steps to repair faulty comprehension, judging how well objectives are met, rereading, and reflecting on what has been learned. And in support reading strategies are using the dictionary, taking notes, paraphrasing, translating, underlining or highlighting, summarising, and synthesizing. Then, the difficulties of EFL learners to become a better reader in reading narrative text were an absence of concrete examples, a clarifying of writing, a length of text, an unfamiliar topic, and an unfamiliar vocabulary (or new meanings of vocabulary). Keywords: Reading Fluency, Reading Strategies, Identification of Difficulty, Narrative Text
