The study sought to find out teacher trainees' perception as readers, their perception as teachers of ESL reading and their evaluation of the teacher education programme in preparing them to teach reading. It was conducted in two teachers' training colleges in Sarawak; namely, Batu Lintang Teacher's College and Tun Abdul Razak Teacher's College. The samples of the study were 30 teacher trainees that opted for Teaching of English as a Second Language (TESL) in the primary schools. TIley were selected by simple random sampling. The instrument used in the study was a Likert-scale questionnaire consisting of 25 items. The findings revealed that the respondents were good readers, however, they do not read much. Most of them felt uncomfortable when asked regarding their reading habits. The study further showed that teacher trainees perceived teachers of ESL reading as teachers who liked reading, enjoyed teaching reading and used it to gain knowledge. The results also suggested that the respondents were enthusiastic towards the teaching of reading. The findings indicated that the teacher trainees viewed the teacher education programme as an important scaffold in providing them with the basic knowledge and experience to be an effective teacher ofESL reading.
