Abstract

This study attempted to investigate the effect of the teacher‘s using currents issues of interest in the society in English classes on the students‘ achievement of the vocabulary in reading comprehension. It was hypothesized that using awareness of current issues of interest has a positive influence on the students‘ achievement of the vocabulary in English class at the university. The research was conducted at Islamic Azad University in Hidaj with participants--male and female-- who were majoring at courses other than English. The research method which was employed was an experimental pretest post-test control group design, and t-test was used to analyze the data. After analyzing the data, it was proved that when teachers contribute current issues of interest in the society to the class materials in teaching reading passages, their students learn vocabulary better.
