    Abstract: This case study is aimed at exploring the extent to which grammar and vocabulary knowledge affect an advanced L2 reader’s reading process when the reader consumes materials in the contexts of reading articles from Time Magazine. It also explores how an advanced L2 reader tackles the difficulties she encounters during L2 reading activities. In this case study, the reading process of a native Chinese speaker who is currently a doctoral student majoring in TESOL in the northern part of Taiwan was investigated. Methods of data collection include personal interviews, recall protocols, and think-aloud protocols. The results of this study reveal that with a competent level of English grammar and vocabulary knowledge, the L2 reader could successfully complete the reading tasks
    without making major comprehension mistakes and was able to overcome reading challenges posed by difficult vocabulary and complex grammar structures. Research findings also reveal that the reader’s reading comprehension was mainly facilitated by her competence of employing a variety of reading strategies which compensated the insufficiency of grammatical and lexical knowledge.
