Contoh Skripsi Bahasa Inggris Chapter I Tentang Crossword Dan Vocabulary
1.1 Background of The problem
Language is a system of communication consisting of sounds, words, and grammar or the system of communication used by the people of the particular country of the profession (Cambridge Advanced Learner’s Dictionary). Language is an important part of human life. People use language in any field in their daily activity. But every country has a different language, so if they want to make a communication with a different country they should use that same language, that language is called international language.
Everybody knows that English is an international language and has been very popular as an important language. Now we can see that English cannot be separated from human life around the world. English is used almost in all aspect of our daily activities such as technology, trades, economics, politics, and language and literature of culture.
In Indonesia, English has been taught as the first foreign language that should be learned and understood, because almost all of science and technology are written in English. The Indonesian government decides English as the first foreign language, which must be taught from junior high school up to university even English is started to be taught for elementary students as the local content.
In achieving the goal of curriculum there are many problems faced by teacher and students, it means that so far the goal of the curriculum has not been achieved yet. It can be seen that many students who have finished from senior high school could not use English for communication both in spoken and written well.
Vocabulary is an essential aspect for everyone who wants to learn a language, although someone is good grammar. For example, he can not ignore the existence of vocabulary. When he or she speaks English, it means he or she expresses an idea of using a number of English words that are arranged appropriately in an acceptable way. When he or she read a book written in English, moreover, he or she actually read a number of English words are composed systematically using accepted English grammar.
That is why Robert Lado states that one can not deny or ignore the existence of words (vocabulary) as a tangible unit of language. By mastering vocabulary, the more vocabulary they master, the more comprehension they have. (Robert Lado, 1957: 75)
Based on the statements above, it can be summarized that to help students in understanding English vocabulary we can use teaching media or kind of games. A kind of game, a picture, and a multimedia system are the unit of media which have been proved in increasing English vocabulary. The problem is why the facilities (media) especially a kind of game had not been used well in teaching learning process, especially in learning vocabulary as the most important thing in learning a language.
But in our view, the students just memorize the vocabulary without imagining in their mind about the things what they have learned because the teacher only gives the words of vocabulary without using the picture itself. It seems like happen by the students of SMP Budi Mulia Kedaton, Bandar Lampung. They are still difficult to learn vocabulary, it caused by the teacher who taught without various techniques and without media self. So in this research, the writer tries to prove that by using an easy crossword, it can increase the students’ vocabulary. The crossword puzzle is a puzzle in which words corresponding to numbered clues are to be found and corresponding to numbered clues are written into squares in the puzzle.

The goal is to fill the white squares with letters, forming words or phrases, by solving clues which lead to the answers.
