Abstract


Adjectives are one of the most important elements of a sentence as they make speech or writing more specific and interesting. However, it is found that the Year 6 students from a school in Labuan F.T. were having difficulties to write multiple adjectives in the correct order. In this regard, this study was aimed to examine the effect of using an acrostic device called Best Friends Forever (BFF) strategy which was introduced to improve students‘ mastery skill in the order of adjectives. A total of 31 Year 6 students from a school in Labuan F.T. were given a pre and posttest before and after the BFF strategy being introduced within a total period of 3 months. Their scores on both tests were compared by using Paired Samples t-test to see the significant difference of their performances before and after the treatment. The findings revealed that the use of BFF strategy helped the students to memorize the order of adjectives better and able to use multiple adjectives in the correct order.
