The last three decades have seen the necessity of new attitudes in foreign language learning, which have influenced the goals to be pursued and the learning methods or strategies by which these goals might be achieved. The new conceptions that are currently held about language and learning force to modify the methodological procedures that have been employed in the learning of a foreign language, not to talk about other theoretical perspectives that have to do with self-regulated learning in English language instruction. A shift of emphasis is perceptible at all levels of the study, while concern for the study of the form of the language had been maintained, now the dedication of researchers is placed upon the function of language as an entity to communicate messages, experiences, and meaning of our daily life. However, this impetuous by teaching to improve students’ reading skills saw no real questioning of classroom practice. For instance, in a national context only a relative handful of studies in which interactive approaches to reading deal with the product and the process of reading have been done. (e.g., Rodriguez, 2018; Zabala, 2016). The scarcity of information on the educational benefits of reading in English as an interactive process is deplorable because it is the sort of evidence the local Offices of Education appear to be requiring in consonance with the National Ministry of Education policies to establish quality and equity in the educative context of our country through programs such as Colombia bilingual. In this line of thought, the English teachers, their educative institutions, and the secretaries of education within their curricular autonomy can analyze, adapt and adopt the necessary strategies and elements in the framework of the teaching and learning process of the English language. This research work is qualitative in that what we seek here is to understand the perceptions about their knowledge and the application of the interactive reading approach in the learning of English as a foreign language, to finally suggest teachers some ideas and tips when teaching reading through the interactive approach. We understand that this research idea may lead to develop other types of qualitative and quantitative studies and they will be developed later after having finished this project. It is also important to remark that as researchers, we did not apply this study with our students, we solely wanted to check and see what our colleagues understood what the interactive reading approach was. Their answers were a solid ground to develop this paper.
