This paper deals with the reading proficiency of ESL learners at the Government Boys Degree Colleges in Sindh. Reading skills happen to be one of the receptive skills in the written mode where the L2 learners try to comprehend an excerpt with the help of linguistic or non-linguistic knowledge-based competence or schemata. A representative sample of 20 the Higher Secondary Certificate (HSC) level teachers (n=9) and learners (n=11) individually completed a close-ended questionnaire based on 20 items; among these, the first fifteen reading strategies-based items adapted from Mokhtari and Sheorey (2002)and the remaining five statements self-produced by the present researchers. The data were analyzed through quantitative content analysis method. The findings suggested that the L2 learners should be provided proper supervision to enhance their reading proficiency; besides, the findings of the study could be applied to the same sociological conditions.
