Abstract:The objective of the research is to see the effectiveness of Games and Simulation in speaking skill on the seventh grade students at SMP Teknologi Pilar Bangsa. The technique applied in this research was quas-experimental research. In this research, there were two classes taught by using different techniques. The experimental class was taught by using Games and Simulation technique while the controlled class was taught by using conventional technique. Futhermore, this research was conducted through the following procedures: giving pre-test, applying treatments, and giving posttest. The sample of this research were 30 students of class 7.1 and 31 students of class 7.3. Normality test was tested by using chi-square. From the calculation of normality showed that the data are normally distributed population. The homogeneity test result of students learning reading comprehension has homogeneous variance. Furthermore, the t-test showed that t-count of experimental class is 3.25, was higher than t-table. The t-test of control class is 3.25, was higher than t-table. It means that finding of this study shows that there is a significance difference in the result between students in class 7 as control class that were taught without games and simulation technique and students in class as experimental class that were taught speaking skill using games and simulation technique.

Based on the writer interpretation it is concluded that hypothesis is accepted.it is suggested that the teacher should imply the speed reading method in teaching reading because research finding proved that speed reading gave more improvement in reading comprehension that the other technique in teaching reading and the speed reading method was more interesting than conventional method.

Abstract:This article aims at sharing information on how pictionary game is used to increase the learners’ vacabulary mastery in the process of teaching and learning. It is clear that vocabulary is one of components of English language. When the learners are reading, they need to master vocabulary related to certain topic. Therefore vocabulary is important thing in learning English. However, mastering English vocabularies is not easy. English is foreign language in which learning English is often considered to be difficult to comprehend. This problem can be seen from the unsatisfactory result when learning English.

There are many factors that can support the existance of an increase in the study, i.e. teachers, learners, materials, media, methods, and other learning sources. One factor that can help the learners learn vocabulary is the use of pictionary game. In this study, pictionary game is a classic game of drawing and guessing pictures. Pictionary game can also increase the imagination of learners, where learners are asked to draw according to the word given by the teachers. Things that are needed to play pictionary game are a list or card of vocabulary items, whiteboard, calkboard, or smart board and markers. Pictionary game will help learners to get involved in classroom activities.

Learning achievement is the result achieved after conducting learning activities. Both learning are done formally and non-formally which includes three aspects of student change cognitive, affective and psychomotor. The use of technology contributes greatly to the improvement of student achievement in English subjects, therefore students who use technology-based learning media in the teaching and learning process in the classroom will get good learning achievements. This research was conducted at SMK Nurul Muhtadin Kibin Serang, with a sample size of 32 students, from a population of 160 students, the researcher took 20% of the sample students from the total population of research. The method used in this research is quantitative descriptive method with research instruments: tests, questionnaires and literature studies. The conclusion obtained from this study is the effectiveness of the use of technology-based learning media in Nurul Muhtadin Vocational High School obtained mean value = 54 Median = 53.68 and Mode = 53.04 and SD = 5.16 While English Learning Achievement obtained mean = 79.53 Median = 77.5 Mode = 70 and Sd = 13.01 whereas from the results of the normality test L = 0.886 is thus Lo (0.2047)> of L (0.886). So that the null hypothesis (Ho) is rejected and the alternative hypothesis (Ha) is accepted, meaning that the sample is normally distributed. While the effect of the effectiveness of the use of technology-based learning media in SMK Nurul Muhtadin Kibin Serang, quantitatively it has a relationship that is sufficient or moderate, this is evidenced by the correlation coefficient ("r") of 0.60, the value is at intertval 0.60-0.80.

In fact, most of the students got difficulties to understand reading text because they think that answering reading is not interesting task and not explicitly stated on the text. The aim of this research is to find out whether any significant effect of using PORPE toward reading comprehension. The research used experimental method. The population was students at Eleventh grade in SMAN 3 Kota Jambi. The sample was divided into two randomized group: XI IPA 1 as experiment class and XI IPA 2 as control class. The instrument of the research had been done in reading comprehension test. The data of the research showed that after counting the students’ scores and analyzing by using t-test formula, the result of experimental class was significantly higher than the students’ score in control class. It was showed at the level of significance 0.05 with the degree of freedom (df) 60, t-observed value 2.512 > t-table value 2.000. The null hypothesis (Ho) was rejected and alternative hypothesis (H1) was accepted. The conclusion was using PORPE strategy affected the students’ reading comprehension.
