Technique For Comprehension

The technique in teaching are pre reading, during reading and postreading activities set on the types of activities provide for students who are learning the English language as follows:

1.      Prereading Activities

According to Alyousef. H. S. (2006: 69) states that the pre-reading activities motivate students before the actual reading takes place. It means the Prereading activities prepare the students to read an upcoming material and particularly important because with adequate preparation the experience of reading will be enjoyable, rewarding, and successful.

2.      During Reading

Based on Anthony B. S. (2006: 65) states that during reading to encourage the learner to be a flexible, active reader also to promote a dialogue between reader and writer. Pinnell in Hoopes. S. L. (2002: 170) states that during reading is the teacher interacts and supports.

3.      Post Reading

Post reading activities are pause and reflect, reread and remember The primary goal of the post reading phase is to further develop and clarify interpretations of the text, and to help the students remember what they have individually create in their minds from the compare differing texts and ideas, to imagine themselves as one of the characters in the text.

The importance of reading

Hedge (2003) states that any reading component of an English language course may include a set of learning goals for 

1.      The ability to read a wide range of texts in English. This is the long-range goal most teachers seek to develop through independent readers outside EFL/ESL classroom. 

2.      Building a knowledge of language which will facilitate reading ability

3.      Building schematic knowledge. 

4.      The ability to adapt the reading style according to reading purpose (i.e. skimming, scanning)

5.      Developing an awareness of the structure of written texts in English 

6.      Taking a critical stance to the contents of the texts

            The last goal can be implemented at an advanced level. Students, however, should be kept aware that not all Internet content is authentic since there are no “gate keepers” and anyone can post whatever he/she likes in this cyberspace. Consequently, students can check the authenticity of the text by looking at the following indicators: whether the article gives the name of the author or no, the date of publication, the aim of the article, etc.
