As a part of language mastery vocabulary improvement is very important in foreign language learning and teaching. The learning of vocabulary should be done continuously in order to help the students comprehend reading materials well. It means that the teaching of vocabulary goes together with the teaching of reading comprehension. As stated by Dobson (1980:152), one's vocabulary stock is very closely related to one's comprehension in reading because vocabulary or word meaning is an integral part of reading and every person should keep reading in order to increase his vocabulary. In reading-symbols or words are Combined together into related ideas. Vocabulary, in this case symbols or words, will be meaningful to make up an idea if they are put in context because words get their exact and full meanings through context. Vocabulary should be presented through context to enable the students retain the words for longer time. That's why the teachers should make use of context to enable the students to identify the unfamiliar words. The students are expected to learn new words which are interrelated in the context. Based on above reasons, the writer chooses reading passages to be a good alternative to enrich or develop the student’s vocabulary. In reading passages, all words are contextual or interrelated in context. The words found in the reading passages contain messages put in logically related sentences in which play an important role as symbols of meaning. Through reading passages the students are able to enrich their vocabulary and understand the new words without opening the dictionary, i.e. just by reading it in context. Besides that the students will be able to grasp the totally of word meanings of new or difficult words easily in reading passages. And at last but not leas they are able to comprehend the messages and grasp the message found in the reading passages to increase their knowledge as well.
