The population of this research was the eleventh grade English department students of SMK Pelayaran Putra Samudera Yogyakarta in academic year 2015/2016 with the total number of students was 50. The sample of this research was XIA with 25 students as experimental class and XIB with 25 students as control class, that were chosen by using purposive sampling.
