    Abstract

    Learning English grammar is difficult and boring for most students. Therefore, English teachers should use some effective techniques in the classroom. This final project mainly aims at finding out the effectiveness of random sounds game in teaching simple past tense on the tenth grade students of SMA N 1 Batang. Random sounds game is a game to speculate orally and/or in writing about the sources of sounds, in using simple past, expressions of uncertainty and/or expressions of speculation. This game demands the learner to identify the sounds that they heard when they closed their eyes for two or three minutes, and then write down. In order to achieve the objective of this research, the writer designed an experimental study. The subject of this study was 56 students of the tenth grade of SMA N 1 Batang; 28 students acted as the experimental group to be taught simple past tense by using random sounds game and the other 28 students as the control group to be taught simple past tense by using conventional method. There were four meetings during the experiment. Before the experiment was conducted, a pre- test was given to both groups. A post test was given after the experiment was done. The test was first tried out to check the validity and reliability. The result of this study can be seen in the following data: the mean score of pre-test of the experimental group is 55.00, while that of the control group is 55.14. In post-test, the mean score of experimental group is 71.29 and the control group is 67.00. There is a good improvement between the results of pre-test and post-test score. In analysing the data, the writer used t-test formula. After the calculation in t-value measurement, the result showed that the t-value score is 6.30. Based on the result above, it means that the t-value score is higher than the critical value. Therefore, it can be concluded that random sounds game is effective as a learning strategy in teaching simple past tense. It is suggested that teachers use random sounds game as one of techniques in teaching simple past tense.
