The researcher describe the people (who were part of a study, etc.), classroom method, texts, vocabulary choice, and tests for the present study in Chapter 3. Chapter 4 includes the data and discussion connected to the effects of text type, English reading ability on students' improvement rates on the test included in appendix. Researcher will relate these findings with previous research and discuss the effects this study brings to our understanding of English language learner vocabulary learning. In Chapter 5, researcher will end by proposing success plans that teachers who interact with English language learner students should adopt as a
