Nowadays Nicaraguans students have to be prepared to live in a world more open to progress, closer to different cultures and languages, going to the hand with the growing technology and economy etc., and this is achieved with foreign language acquisition in Media Basic education. “In addition to the lack of methodology to teach English in schools in Nicaragua, specialists in education point out to the needs of students to be autodidact that can complement the learning of the language beyond the lesson within the classroom” “The deficit of bibliographical resources and methodological resources affects the learning of English, according to the specialist in education, Mario Quintana, since he considered that the English cannot be taught without the books and other materials for educational support. …" (Castillo Bermudez, La Prensa, 2011) All this demand the necessity to have specialized teachers able to implement methods to facilitate the learning process of reading comprehension in EFL1, in order to have the students improve their reading skills.
