During past decades, research in L2 reading has focused on the relative importance of the main factors in L2 reading: L2 linguistic competence and reading ability. The present study investigates the effects of L2 linguistic competence on L2 reading in terms of its accountability for L2 reading comprehension and relationship with the use of reading strategies. The data were collected through a survey and tests of Korean reading ability, English reading ability, English grammar and vocabulary from 90 Korean learners of English, and analyzed by various statistical procedures. The findings were as follows: (1) L2 linguistic competence had greater effect on unsuccessful readers than on successful readers, whereas the L2 reading scores of the readers beyond a certain level of L2 linguistic competence were strongly correlated with those of Ll; (2) readers`` L2 linguistic competence was a significant predictor in using reading-oriented skills and the employing of reading-oriented skills was related with L2 reading comprehension. These findings suggest that readers`` L2 linguistic competence be a crucial factor in the effective reading instruction, and improvement of their grammar and vocabulary to a proper level is a necessary condition to make the most use of their reading skills.
