Abstract


Many approaches can be used to teach grammar nowadays; two of them are traditional approach and communicative approach. Some experts claim that traditional approach is more appropriate to be applied to students who learn English as a foreign language, while others claim that communicative approach should be applied to grammar classes to make the students acquire the ability of using the right form. Therefore, this study aims to seek the effectiveness of both approaches when they are used to raise the students‘ awareness on the form, especially the form of English tenses. An experimental research is applied to four Elementary grammar classes of English Department of Universitas Negeri Semarang; Two are taught using traditional approach, and the other two are taught using communicative approach. They are also introduced with finiteness term to help them use the right form.
