Description: This investigation was centered on reading comprehension skill since students need to develop this skill in order to become literate. However, students of tenth grade at Escuela de Educación Básica “Trece de Abril” have faced different problems in their English language development and especially in the development of their reading comprehension skill due to diverse reasons, such as, the old fashioning methods and strategies applied by the teacher, lack of motivational activities, low knowledge of vocabulary words and grammar structures, and others. The objective of this research is to improve the English reading comprehension skill in students of tenth grade at Escuela de Educación Básica “Trece de Abril” located in La Libertad through the implementation of a website with some reading activities. Moreover, the quantitative method allowed the application of a survey which was directed to students; results from survey were illustrated in charts and statistical graphics. Additionally, the qualitative method allowed the application of interviews to the principal, English teacher and to one specialist. As it was established before, it had the necessity to improve the reading comprehension skill of tenth grade students in this institution; therefore, it was proposed to create a web site to provide reading activities to develop such an important skill for students giving as results the increase of interest of students for reading and the development of critical thinking of students during the practice of each reading activity.
