Abstract

Abstract
This research was conducted to investigate the effect of using Grammar
Translation Method (GTM) in teaching reading at fifth semester students of
Ahwal As-Syakhsiyah of STIS Darul Falah Mataram in academic year
2018/2019. This research was an experimental research with two group
design. The population of this research was all of students at fifth semester of
Ahwal As-Syakhsiyah of STIS Darul Falah Mataram which consisted of 60
students and they were divided into 2 classes, Class A and B. Class A was
taken as sample by using cluster sampling technique. Pre-test and post-test
were used in collecting the data. Then, it was analyzed by using ttest. The
result showed that score of t-test (3.63) was higher than the score of t-table
(2.003) at the confidence level .05 (95%). Therefore, null hypothesis (H0)
which stated that “GTM is not effective in teaching reading’’ was rejected.
Meanwhile, the score of t-test (3.63) was higher than the score of the t-table
(2.663) at the confidence level .01 (99%). It indicates the alternate hypothesis
(Ha) which stated that “GTM is effective in teaching reading’’ was accepted.
It means that there was a significant effect of using GTM in teaching reading
text because there was a significant difference between students’ pre-test and
post-test score after treatments. Furthermore, the results of tests show that
most students gave positive responses toward the use of GTM. Finally, the
result of the research suggest that the students loved this method because it
successfully motivated them to read texts in an enjoyable way and to improve
their reading texts in terms of enriching vocabularies, organizing ideas and
understanding the text easily. It is then recommended that GTM be used in
teaching reading in different text types and levels of schooling.
