Abstract

The lack of students’ English vocabulary hinders them in learning English. This is due to the fact that they have difficulties in memorizing the foreign language vocabulary. One of the techniques that is used to memorize words is rehearsal technique. Therefore, I am motivated to conduct this study to investigate whether or not rehearsal technique is effective in improving English vocabulary of students. This is an experimental study, the design of which is divided into two groups namely; experimental and control groups. The experimental group is taken from grade XI of social program (IPS.4 class) and the control group is XI IPS.3 class with the total number of each group is 35 students. There are three steps in collecting the data. Firstly, I gave the two groups pre-test that consisted of 25 questions. Secondly, I gave different treatments for both groups in which the experimental group was treated by using rehearsal technique and control group was treated by using three- phrases technique. The last step, I gave post-test for two groups. As the result, there is influence of rehearsal technique in improving students’ English vocabulary. It is indicated from test scores of both groups. It was provided that score deviation of experimental group was 1768 and control group was 1326, mean score deviation of experimental was 50.51 and control group was 37.89. The result of t-test was 3.85 and t-table 2.29 (.05) and 1.99 (.01). Then, the result obtained that t-test was higher than t-table both of confidence levels .05 (95 %) and .01(99 %) with its degree of freedom was 68 (Nx+Ny-2=35+35-2). Thus, it can be concluded that rehearsal technique is effective in improving English vocabulary of eleventh grade students at SMAN 1 Aikmel in academic year 2013/2014.
