Description This research explores EFL students’ paraphrasing ability with goals in identifying EFL learners’ reading skill levels and difficulties. This research used a qualitative method and schema theory. The subjects of this were 11 students of English Education 2019 of Class A in STKIP PGRI Sidoarjo. The results showed that 31.54% of the participants had difficulties in paraphrasing while reading the English text because of the differences in cultural backgrounds, and other difficulties such as constructing ideas, choosing and ordering words, using correct sentence constructions, lacking vocabularies, and knowledge about paraphrasing. Meanwhile, 68.45% of the participants were already familiar with paraphrasing, so that they could identify the solutions for their own difficulties, such as using various sources to learn about paraphrasing, sharing with friends, and asking the lectures or teachers. Additionally, all the participants agreed that paraphrasing would be very helpful in improving their reading ability.
