    <description descriptionType="Abstract">&lt;p&gt;The ability to read is especially crucial among adolescents. The present study assessed the reading difficulties experienced by 150 Filipino university students in reference to vocabulary, grammar usage, as well as paragraph analysis and paragraph organisation. It has been discussed that an analysis of reading abilities among second language readers will provide a deeper understanding of the reading process as language-dependent rather than as universal. Furthermore, the study has also provided implications on the nature of second language reading, the database in second language reading, text- and knowledge-driven operations in second language reading, and second language reading classroom factors. Assessment of comprehension is briefly reviewed, and recommendations are provided for theoretical, cultural and educational implications.&lt;/p&gt;</description>
