I'm not sure if this question has an accurate answer, but...

How good is Kyon at English (specifically at reading)?

Pretty bad, I guess. I believe that he couldn't read the cover of Nagato's books, when she move up from translated hard scy-fi books to hard sy-fi books in it original language.

However, this "original" language could be German, Russian or anything. And, as don't think he ever tryed to read other things in English, I believe there is no accurate asnwer.

Why you want to no, if I can ask?

I'd imagine he'd be able to have a vague understanding of the various character albums, but that's all I can think of in regards to English.

Truthfully, this really can't be answered. It's mostly just speculation, due to his usual complaints over Haruhi being so much better than him at school.

in the novels, kyon is bad at studying and almost fails exams(which he passed after haurhi's help) so i think it is quite safe to say that he is bad at english

He's just good at odd meta references and jargon in his narrations.

You missed one 'why' there, actually.

Let's just say that he's got about the same grasp of the English language as someone who's just starting out with any language: The numbers from 1-10, a handful of random words and the ever-important phrases of "Where is the restroom?" and "I only know {insert first language here}, can you speak it?"

Yeah, in other words he knows about as much as any average high schooler in Japan.

Do emotions usually make TFEIs go: "Error error foreign program detected or something?" *referring to Yuki's division by zero error during the Disappearance or something like that*

Kyon commented that Yuki went "berserk" when "emotions" appeared.

To be accurate:
Spoiler for Why Nagato's CPU turned to noodles:


A question I was thinking: What is the minimum age required to read the Haruhi light novels? (with all those deep philosophies and strip Mikuru scenes it feels like a minimum of 18).

Also, 18+ really tends to be reserved for explicit sex or gore.
