ABSTRACT
Despite some similarities, written forms of different languages may differ from each other in terms of the rules of written language and written discourse. These are such differences as punctuation, organization of ideas namely composition, textual aspects such as coherence and cohesion, formal differences in various genres. When teaching a foreign language, the best way to introduce the students to the written language is to use materials written in that language. In this article, the role and importance of reading in EFL (English as a Foreign Language) writing classes are emphasised and sample applications from various sources are also provided to give a better idea to EFL teachers about the issue.
