Abstract EN

The problem of reading comprehension is encountered the learners of private schools because they are not accustomed to read skillfully, instead, they try to pick up the meaning depending just on surface form (denotation) of words.

The study was conducted to shed the light on the problems of reading comprehension that encountered private secondary students in Al-Geneina Administrative Unit in Western Darfur State- Sudan.

There are twenty- one private secondary schools in Al-Geneina ,the second-class students were selected asa population of the study, and (46) forty sixparticipants were chosen randomly as a sample of the study.The descriptive analytical method was used.

A comprehension test used as a tool for data collection.

The study found that; learners neglected the two important skills in reading English comprehension which are skimming and scanning, and that's happened because of their vocabulary weakness.Teachers should have to teach and show their studentsthe differences between skimming and scanning so as to find out the general and specific meaning of the text.
