Abstract
The study examines the effect of attitude toward reading toward English language competence. In the analysis the roles of mediational factors such as exposure to reading in English (12) and exposure to reading in Korean (Ll) are also examined. Results show that attitude has an indirect positive
effect on English language competence through reading in Korean and English. Such outcome indicates that in order to ensure that a positive attitude contribute to actual foreign language competence, reading not only in the language of interest but also reading in one's mother tongue must take place.
