Abstract


One of the priority purpose of teaching English as a foreign language to Indonesian people is that
they can read in order to grasp the idea and to understand the book written in English. The ability to
read is crucial for the students in reaching both the academic and society success. The successfulness
of teaching reading cannot be separated from the skill of selecting an appropriate reading material.
By reading an appropriate reading material, the students can effectively expand their knowledge;
train their brain to think and acquire new information and idea. This paper aimed at discussing the
role of graded reading materials in teaching reading of EFL learners. A number of studies point out
that the L2 learners will feel motivated and enjoy in learning the language if the anxiety levels are as
low as possible. Graded reading material which is written in various levels of reading, meets the
needs of today’s language learners by maximizing reading opportunities in an enjoyable, relaxing and
accessible way.
