This study is an attempt to compare the reading comprehension ability of two groups of intermediate adult EFL Iranian students on two reading passages (one narrative and the other expository) under two input conditions: linguistically modified input, characterized by both lexical and syntactic modifications, and interactionally modified input with no linguistic modifications but with opportunities for interaction with the teacher. The results of the study revealed that the students who were allowed to seek clarification by asking questions understood the texts better than the students who had read the modified version of the texts. The conclusions drawn from the findings of this study are twofold: they lend empirical support to Long’s Interaction Hypothesis, and recommend the use of authentic reading materials, accompanied by classroom interaction.
