Abstract

The conventional approach to implementing extensive reading involves high initial investment costs, obtaining space and a circulation management system for the reading materials. Over time, texts become outdated, worn out or lost and need to be replaced. For teachers, using time in class for timed reading activities can be a hassle: making copies, keeping time and adjusting for students who finish at different speeds. In order to alleviate these and additional concerns, we have developed an extensive reading software that allows online texts to be used as reading material. This original revolutionary software named PREMA (your Personal REading MAnager) allows students to utilize texts (of any size) that they find online, which comes with features of automatically tracking the total number of words read, measuring students’ reading speed, and rate the relative difficulty of a particular text based on vocabulary lists. In addition to the attractive features stated above, we have also developed an option to customize the vocabulary list system in order to allow for customization for ESP (English for Specific Purpose) uses. This system enables users to change the vocabulary list from the default list to their own ESP one, for example, medical or engineering, etc. In this paper, the features of PREMA are overviewed and the process of development of the switchable word list system is shown.
