In contrast, their time consumption for preparing different kinds of activities was at high level, (total mean = 3.67). (2) There were no statistically significant differences in English reading models between male and female at the 0.05 level. (3) Interestingly, students with different levels of reading ability - high and mid – also had statistically significant differences in their reading models in the aspects of reading frequency, motivation in reading, and time consumption for preparing English reading activities at the 0.05 level.
