Display question facilitated students to understand the reading-story, to scaffold the students in understanding the content of reading-story, increase the quantity of interaction, achieve immediate fedback and facilitate students’ initiation. In confirmation check, comprehension check and clarification request, faciliated students to provide negotiation, build the interaction and motivate the students in learning. In conclusion, the discrepancy of using different type of questions in certain classroom activity is caused by the materials of teaching. The use of students’ book facilitate the teacher to use more display questions. Thus, teachers’ questions play very important rule in facilitating classroom language learning.
