Reading is an activity person to obtain information from something written. Reading involves recognition of the symbol and the letters that make a language. But there are some people who are lazy to read text in English language which is not a language that is used everyday by Indonesian people. In addition to reading, there are also the most common activities to obtain information that is heard. Hear is a way to gain an understanding of the meaning of the information in the form or sound using auditory senses. Reading activities contributed 10% ability for know information, with listening, knowing information can reach 30%. With conditions like this, then it needs an alternative media that can help treat the condition.
