Abstract

The present study was carried out to explore the students’ English reading habit and to examine whether there is a correlation between students’ reading habit and their writing ability. The research was conducted to second year students at SMAN 4 Kota Banda Aceh. 40 students out of 271 were randomly taken as the sample of this study. The quantitative research was used to collect the data by using questionnaires and test in order to find out students’ English reading habit and their writing ability respectively. Twenty (20) items of questionnaire and writing test were given to the participant at SMAN 4 Kota Banda Aceh. The data were analysed by using Likert scale and the correlation coefficient by Pearson. The result of questionnaires show that students have a high reading habit. The majority of them enjoyed reading English very much using online sources; however only few agree to spent 15-30 minutes each day to read English although they spend their time periodically to read English every week. In addition, most of them also affirmed that reading English is purposed to improve their writing skill as they think that reading English is supported their intentions. This fact is highly correlated to the result of correlation coefficient which shows that the correlation between students’ reading habit and their writing ability is 0.899 (high correlation). Therefore, it can be concluded that the students have high reading habit even though only few agree to spent 15-30 minutes of their time to read English each day while they know that reading highly impacts their writing ability. Hence, it implies that students should provide more time to read voluntarily because it gives significant effect to their writing ability.
