The main purpose of this current research study is to identify the primary English language learners’ perceptions on the educational effects of online extensive reading program, and to figure out any statistical differences based on the four different variables such as participants’ gender, grade, their English proficiency level, and length of English study time. To answer these questions, a total number of 105 students from a national elementary school in Gangwon province participated and answered a survey questionnaire, which was composed of 23 items in total, and the collected data were analyzed in a quantitative way using Jamovi program, which is an open and free comprehensive statistical software. The results revealed that overall perceptions of the online extensive reading program as well as affective factors, and satisfaction degree were positive a bit beyond average. The differences between genders showed that the mean of the female group was higher than the male one, and there was a significant difference between them. There was no significant difference between grades and English proficiency, however. Lastly, based on the length of English study time, there was a significant difference in affective factors, and satisfaction degree. Based on the findings, the pedagogical implications are later addressed.
