Abstract


Communication is created through language that enables people to communicate with other people without limitation of time or distance. As language teachers, we hold critical roles engaging our students to negotiate meaning with the other by using what we called as text in order to achieve goals. Teaching them to realize that the flow of information in a clause from Theme to Rheme is crucial in achieving communicative effectiveness in a message will help them to portray how ideas in their texts are developed and related. The exchange of information between successive Theme and Rheme pairings in a text is called Thematic progressions. It is a pattern of interaction among clauses within a text which contributes to the cohesive development of a text. This paper highlights the application of the thematic progression in improving cohesion of the student‘s texts because cohesion is the main requirement to produce a good text.
