Oral Reading fluency has been the topic of enough discussion in English L1 settings, as part of reading education and research. However ORF hasn’t been able to gain much attention in FL and L2 settings, except certain preliminary studies on the importance of ORF for second language (L2/FL) learners, done by educators and researchers. Implementing ORF into the FL literacy framework can largely facilitate reading comprehension for students. Therefore, incorporating oral reading fluency in L2 reading should be beneficial as L2 learners need not only read text quickly and smoothly but also comprehend and process information. The current paper is thus an attempt towards a more comprehensive analysis on how oral reading fluency may be incorporated in the FL literacy framework for successful reading comprehension.
