The next skill is reading. Its aim is to understand and absorb the writer’s purpose. Meaningful tasks should be set in order to give the students a need to read (Watkins, 2007).

At the end of the study, the students should be able to communicate effectively in English for study, work, and leisure outside the classroom. Therefore, it is essential that English teachers pay great attention in teaching speaking to the students.
