Students' vocabulary scores have proceeded to the statical analysis. The analysis results prove that the use of Translation activities improve students’ vocabulary mastery. The hypothesis test, using the independent t-test in SPSS, shows that t-count is 24.08, while t-table for α = 5% is 2.042 ( t-count 24.08 > t-table 2.042). It means that the research hypothesis (H0) is rejected and (Ha) is accepted. To further the hypothesis test, the calculation of the N-Gain score shows that the experimental group is classified 'Medium'. It concludes that there is a significant difference in students' scores between pretest and posttest scores. In conclusion, teaching vocabulary with translation activities improves students’ vocabulary mastery.
