    Abstract

    This final project is about the students‟ abilities in using personal pronouns in their English sentences. The objective of the study is to describe how the eight grade students of SMP Negeri 3 Jepara‟s abilities in using personal pronouns in their sentences. This study is also conducted to explain the common difficulties faced by them. Besides, this study is also describing how the students‟ abilities in applying the textual level. The method used in this study is descriptive qualitative, especially case-study. The population of this research was 37 students. I took the whole students in class 8-E as the sample. They were given a test to be answered. The test was consisted of filling the blanks, missing words, and an essay. Their answers were used as the source of the data collection. The results were analyzed and interpreted. After the data were computed and analyzed, it was found out that the average proportion of the correct answer was 69.59 which implied that the students‟ average grade was only C (adequate level) in using personal pronouns in their English sentences based on standard mastering level by calculating the frequency distribution. There were seven words of personal pronouns categorized as difficult based on the results. Those words were ours, her, themselves, hers, their, them, and ourselves. Then, this study confirmed the proposed assumption that there were some problems or difficulties that were faced by the students. That problems might be caused by reinforcement, environment, and instruments input (material or curriculum, teacher, teaching methods, and tools of education). In this case, it is suggested for the English teachers to make some variations in teaching personal pronouns in order to improve their students‟ ability in using personal pronouns and also practice them in daily communication. Last but not least, there should be more word of personal pronouns exercises in a textbook that can be used by the students.
