Repeated reading has not gained enough attention from English language practitioners in Vietnam although previous studies have shown that it facilitates EFL learners' reading rate and reading comprehension. This study set out to determine whether this method is advantageous for Vietnamese EFL learners' reading fluency development. The participants were two groups of EFL adults following an English program at a language center. During the experiment, the treatment group did repeated reading while the control group did not. A pre-test and a post-test were utilized to assess the participants' reading fluency. The learners' reading rates were measured using the words per minute method and their reading comprehension was measured by calculating the number of correct answers to the comprehension questions. The data indicate that the treatment group participants outperformed their control group counterparts in terms of both reading rate and reading comprehension. The findings suggest that repeated reading brings about splendid benefits and that repetition is necessary for language acquisition to take place.
