Maria Johana Ari Widayanti

Abstract


English is an international language that is used to communicate in many countries, but in Indonesia, English is a foreign language that is taught since elementary schools. As a foreign language, students get difficulties in learning English. Sometimes they got bored in learning English. To overcome students‘ difficulties, English should be taught in an interesting way, such as games, songs, and others. In learning English, we can‘t separate from vocabulary. Harmer says (1991: 153) if a language forms a skeleton, vocabulary is vital organs in one language skeleton. It can be said if we only spend less time to learn grammar, we can‘t improve our English skill because vocabulary plays a main role in learning a language. The aim of this research was to improve students‘ vocabulary through an educative games media that is held at SD N Nyatnyono 2 Ungaran Barat Grade 4, Semarang Regency. This research used descriptive qualitative that included research, information collecting, and socialization. The result showed there was an improvement in learning English through the educative games. Students were happy and interested in learning English and their vocabularies were increased.
