In essence, reading lets learners examine arguments, make prediction, inference, or interpretation, and explore implication and consequence.

As such, three kinds of tasks were selected in this study: multiple choices; matching information to paragraphs; and yes/no/not given. In order to accomplish the objectives of the study, 30 test takers have already participated in this research.
