The 30 students were randomy and equally assigned as experimental group and another 30 students as the control group. The instrument of this research was multiple choice test used as pre-test and post-test to asses the students’ vocabulary ability in experimental and control group. In analyzing the data, the researcher used t-test. The finding of this research showed that in the significance degree of 0.05 the t-test was higher than t-table value (4.024>2.045).
