TEACHING ENGLISH VOCABULARY

OF USING RANDOM PICTURES TECHNIQUE

TO IMPROVE THE STUDENT ABILITY
AT FIRST YEAR OF SMP ISLAMIYAH WIDODAREN


Background Of The Study
Among the foreign language which are knows in Indonesia, English is regarded as the first foreign language, which should be mastered by everyone. However, the teaching of it is still considered a great problem. English is the most common language used in commerce, business, technology and education. It is spoken and learnt by people as means of communication for different purposes.
English has an important position in education in our country and now became a compulsory subject since the elementary school to university level. An education process is not only done in one place, but also can be done in houses, in society and schools.
Actually there are many problems in learning English, one of which is how to create interesting conditions in the class while studying English, especially in learning vocabulary. Learning vocabulary will facilite students learning in listening, speaking, reading and writing.
Vocabulary is one of the essential aspects of language. Knowing appropiate vocabulary is very important to understand language. It is important to master vocabulary to express ideas precisely and forcefull. Penny Ur ( 2000 : 60 ) state that “ Vocabulary can be defined, roughly, as the words we teach in the foreign language “. One thing that may not be neglected in teaching and learning English for foreigners is to each vocabulary because without knowing vocabulary people cannot communicate with each other.
Success and failure in learning English as a foreign language may be evaluated by the progress of students in language acquisition and cultural understanding and in the development of a positive attitude toward language learning. However, the most important factors depends on the basic procedure being used by the teacher.
A good method can be useless in the hands of a teacher who does not know how to use it; a good teacher can be ineffectual with a poor method. We should expect the teacher to know the language he is teaching. But this is not always the case, and it is not a simple either-or question. It is not sufficient that he should know the language well in order to teach it. If it were, the best language teachers would be native speakers with higher degrees in their own language and its literature.
Such persons have sometimes turned out to be not the best teachers of their mother tongue as a foreign language. What is important is a mastery of the language at the level at which it is being taught.




Reason for Choosing the Topic
The statement of the problem which has been formulated by the writer is:
Can random pictures technique increase the students vocabulary achievement in smp islamiyah widodaren?

The Aim of Writing the Paper

In this research the writer would like to:
To find out whether the use of random pictures technique can increase the students vocabulary achievement in first year of smp islamiyah widodaren

Hypothesis Assumption
The writer uses alternative hypothesis (Hi) and states that:
The use of random pictures technique can increase the students vocabulary achievement in smp islamiyah widodaren.

Research Methods

In carrying out the research, the writer uses experimental method. In this case, the writer gives two kinds of tests :
Pre-test : the test that is given before gives a treatment.
Post-test : the test that is given after gives a treatment.
Sample and Population of Research
The population of this research is the students of SMP Islamiyah Widodaren. And the sample, the writer has chosen 40 students as an experimental group and 40 students as a control group and they are taken randomly lottery.

Research Instrument
In this study the writer uses an achievement test. A vocabulary test that serves as the research instrument was designed and used to evaluate the influence of random pictures technique to the students vocabulary achievements.
The achievement tests in this study are random pictures tests containing 20 items in the form of objective test.


Technique of Data Analysis
The data obtain from those instruments are related to the major problem in this study. In this research, the writer model is commited into two groups. The ones is an experimental group which has a treatment and the other is a control which has no treatment.
After an experiment is carried out, the result of both groups are calculated by comparing both means. For the free random sample the testing of mean difference is calculated with the t-test as follow:
t= (Mx-My)/?(((?_x??2+ ?_y?2?)/(Nx+Ny-2))(1/Nx+ 1/Ny) )
Where :
Mx = the mean of average of the experiment group
My = the mean of average of the control group
Nx = the number of subject in the experiment group
Ny = the number of subject in the control group
x = standard deviation of x2 and x1
y = standard deviation of y2 and y1
