Abstract

The present study aims to explore the types of Indonesian EFL students' strategies to comprehend the economics texts. To identify the types of strategies, retrospections and reading comprehension tests were adopted and analyzed. The results revealed that most students with a low level of English proficiency remained more dependent on the bottom-up strategies than top-down strategies. However, using the bottom-up strategies had facilitated the students comprehend the economics texts. Thus, in spite of its limitation, the study has some implications to ESAP reading in EFL classrooms.
