Reading is an interactive process that goes on between the author, the reader and the text. In the process of trying to understand a written text, the reader has to perform a number of simultaneous tasks, decode the message by recognizing the written signs, interpret the message by assigning meaning to the string of words, and finally, understand what the author’s intention was (murcia, 2000). In teaching learning process of reading, the lessons are typically represented in the form of texts which consists of vocabulary. In this case, the teachers should provide the appropriate textbook to be applied in teaching learning process.
