The present study examines the development of repeated reading (RR) on accuracy, fluency, and comprehension for EFL learners. The participants getting involved in the study were 13 males and 14 females who took extensive reading in a regular class. They read similar type of passages ranges from 311 up to 564 words, with a mean length of 425.46 words for twelve weeks. Pre-test was conducted prior to the treatment by reading out loud and answering the comprehension questions on the passage. Having done the treatment, post-test was administered and the participants did the same way as it was in the pre-test. Data were collected and analyzed using t-test for correlated samples since the data were obtained from the same group. The result showed that there was significant difference between the first and the last post-test since probability was lower than alpha (p < .05). There is a tendency in the development of EFL learners’ fluency to be steady with slight increase. Yet, the accuracy increased sharply without having detrimental effect on comprehension.
