Abstract

The aim of the study has been to determine the ways that may facilitate the freshmen at universities, who have English as their second language, with comprehension and understanding of study material. It has included different levels of reading material to the students in order to identify which approach is more convenient for the students to perceive. The approach has concluded that advanced vocabulary and grammatical structure may make it difficult for the students to perceive the meaning of study material. It has been perceived from the study that simplification in the text can bring upon positive impacts on the comprehensibility of content. The comprehensiveness can assist students in learning the study modules yet, it is also presumed that simplification may not enhance the students’ capability to comprehend the second language more efficiently. It is expected that further research in the field may give deeper insight of the linguistic modifications that may improve the comprehending abilities of the students.
