I'm guessing he was asking taxi to the active runway for pattern work ("right closed traffic").

As swa4678 says, "closed traffic" means staying in the traffic pattern to practice landings.  The "right" refers to the direction of turns while flying the pattern.  The tower will say for example "make left traffic" when clearing you.  When based at a given airport you will know how it is usually done.  In some countries the terminology is "circuit" rather than "traffic pattern".
