Recount text is one of texts taught in English classes in Indonesia. Recount text retells event or experience that happen in the past. An important component in writing recount text is its rhetorical structure. Rhetorical structure is the structure of the text that organized to meet the text purpose. There are three components of rhetorical structure. Those three components are orientation, series of events and re-orientation. This study used qualitative content analysis approach since the focus of this study is to describe the rhetorical structure that contained within English recount texts. The data was collected through interview and documentation. The instruments that used in this study are interview guidelines and students’ work. Then, the reasearch result show that not all the components of rhetorical structure were written on the text. Some texts did not include orientation within it. Some other did not include re-orientation. And there was also texts that did not include both orientation and re-orientation. But, all texts include series of events in the texts. The number of texts that did not include orientation were two texts. And the texts that did not include re-orientation were eleven texts. While the texts that did not include both orientation and re-orientation were two texts. As for series of events, there were none. It can also be state in percentage as, there were 5% texts that did not contain orientation, 29% texts did not contain re-orientation and 5% texts did not contain both orientation and re-orientation. Based on the percentage it can be conclude that the texts are already good but still need some improvement in re-orientation aspect.
