This study will examine the effectiveness of short story on the reading comprehension of the
second language learners. The interface and joint association of literature and language
education has been the focus of attention to numerous EFL (English as a Foreign Language)
investigators, particularly in the twentieth century. With literature as a medium of instruction
for foreign language teaching has proved exceedingly handy. Predominantly the unique
attributes of short story, i.e., its pithiness, modernism, and diversity render it alluring as well
as fascinating to foreign language students along with a worthy source intended for the
enhancement of second language reading comprehension. The short story can proffer learners
ample lingual, rational, and emotive engagement and enhance their understanding.
