ABSTRACT
This article aims to show why Semiotic Approach to the reading of literary texts is of great importance to the field of EFL pedagogy, and how CALLA (Cognitive Academic Language Learning Approach ) can be used in congruous with this highly intellectual critical reading approach, both of which help develop both the literary competence and intellectual performance of the reader in a continuous fashion. Those who acquired this effective reading skill simply move beyond what the text literally says to what it actually communicates across by activating all the necessary background cultural schemata in the mind of the readers. They first read within the text for the sense, and then interpret the text by reading upon the text to reach the value (theme) lying in the cultural background of the whole text. If they feel to be competent enough to criticise the work, they evaluate it by reading against the text. This comprehensive communicative approach to the reading of literary texts helps develop communicative competence in the process of time as it arouses interest in the learners to express them properly by communicating what they mean. Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock is a perfect example for the long literary texts that can be used to show the consecutive steps of the approach since it is highly rich in terms of signs used as symbols, which require a higher order intellectual reading skill.
