The method used in this research was descriptive method with a cor-relational technique. The population in this study were all students of class V elementary school 01 Pagi Bendungan Hilir, Central Jakarta, Indonesia amounting to 78 students. The sample were 38 with the sampling technique and taken randomly. The instruments used for data retrieval were through multiple-choice tests for the variables of vocabulary mastery (X2) and reading comprehension (Y) and a questionnaire for the variable of reading interest (X1). The results of the research showed (1) the research hypothesis is accepted because rob = 0.872> r table = 0.320. The coefficient of determination is (R2) = (0.872) 2 = 0.761 or 76.1%. This means that the contribution of reading interest (X1) amounted to 76.1% of the reading comprehension (Y). (2) the research hypothesis is accepted because rob = 0.797> r table = 0.320. The correlation coefficient between the vocabulary mastery and reading comprehension of 0.797 is significant. (3) The research hypothesis is accepted because rob = 0.873> r table = 0.320. It can be concluded that the correlation coefficient between the variables of reading interest and vocabulary together with the reading comprehension of 0.873 is significant.
