This research endeavors to investigate the integral role of reading strategies in the development of spoken English language skills. The primary objective is to discern the effectiveness of applying these strategies during reading to enhance comprehension. The study is motivated by the wealth of literature underscoring the advantages of reading strategies for both foreign and second language learners, with a particular emphasis on their impact on the progression from input to output language acquisition. Employing a qualitative research design, the study utilizes open-ended questionnaires as a method to gather comprehensive data. The findings illuminate the positive outcomes associated with the adept application of reading strategies and consistent engagement in reading activities, particularly in the context of improving speaking skills. This research recommends heightened awareness among English educators and learners regarding the profound significance of employing appropriate reading strategies during the learning process. The aim is to enhance comprehension skills and foster fluent spoken communication, enabling learners to communicate more effectively and proficiently in English.
