This paper describes an action plan of an extensive reading program which is designed as the implementation of the concept problem-based and lexically-based learning. The first concept relies on the idea that the students are encouraged to take responsibility for their group and organize and direct the learning process with support from a tutor or instructor (Spencer, 1999). Meanwhile the lexically-based learning is meant to overcome the problem in EFL learning which is rooted from insufficient vocabulary and consequently need more serious learning (Kweldju, 2004).
In this program, the learners are given opportunity to read and explore report and commentary of various laboratory testing. It aims at developing careful reading, good analysis, and critical diagnosis. In addition, it builds up knowledge of vocabulary and structure in the authentic reading materials relevant to their major. The expected outcome of the course is to equip the learners to be graduates of Medicine faculty who have context-specific language skills to be used when they become physicians in international hospitals.
