    Abstract

    The objectives of this study were to find out students‟ difficulties in learning English vocabulary and to know the effectiveness of TV Cards(Thematic Vocabulary Cards) in improving students‟ English vocabulary mastery. In order to achieve the objectives of the study, the researcher designed an action research which consisted of pre-test, 3 cycles of treatment, and post test. The subject of this study were the seventh grade students of SMP N 1 Wonosobo in the academic year of 2012/ 2013, with the number of the object was 26 students; 9 males and 17 females. 5 meetings were held during the research in which the students had to join some testsand also some cycles of treatment which consisted of quizzes and various activities by using TV Cards as the media. The result of this study showed there was a significant improvement made by the students in identifying and remembering new English vocabulary available in the given descriptive texts. Pre- test result showed 27 % of students scored less than 50; 69 % students scored 51- 75; and only the rest of them scored more than 76, meaning that the average score of the class was still low, which was only 54.10. While after conducting Post- test, it could be seen that no student scored less than 50; only one student scored 73; and the rest of them successfully scored above 76. Compared to Pre- Test‟s result, the Post- Test‟s showed the better average score, which increased up to 79%. In line with the result, I would like to offer some suggestions for teachers to be a facilitator in creating effective learning activities, to be able to make teaching and learning process more interesting, enjoyable and educative and also to be competent in choosing attractive media appropriate to the materials so that the students can improve their ability in mastering English vocabulary.
