It is one of the learning skills of acquiring a language represented by the activity of reading comprehension. Reading is often regarded as a direct way of teaching or learning a foreign language. It is direct in the way students or readers receive and produce information from a written text. The aim of the present study is to shed light on the old well known strategies of learning that shows how the process of reading is direct. Those strategies are no more direct.
