In the beginning of the study, both of Experimental and Control Groups were given a pre-test to measure the students’ reading comprehension in the form of a test consisting of 20 questions.

The data of the pre-test and post-test of both groups were analyzed using descriptive statistics and pre-analyze by using SPSS V20. After the data were tested and found to be homogeneous variance but the distribution of the data is not normal, the hypothesis was tested using Mann-Whitney test. The result of this research shows that there is a significant difference in the students’ reading comprehension who are taught by using sensory images strategy and those who are not. The significance of Mann Whitney test 0,003 < 0,05 level of significant. It means that the use of sensory images strategy has significant effect on the students’ reading comprehension.
