The result of this research showed that thelesson plan that is made by the teacherwas quite good. but some of the components were not described specifically and needs to be changed. The procedures of teaching English vocabulary that were conducted by the teacher almost fulfill five essential steps in vocabulary learning. A coursebook entitled “Getting Started in English” is the only source of the materials to teach English in this school. The coursebook was not communicative enough.The teacher often used the translation technique that made the students sometimes lazy to remember the meaning of the words. The teacher still used teacher center more than student center. The teacher often used vocabulary books and dictionary as the media of teaching, not only to introduce the words. The teacher rarely used the other media, that were better. Some of the assessments had not fulfill the criterion of a good assessment, yet. The vocabulary task is the only assessment that fulfills a good criterion of a good assessment. The worksheet of this vocabulary task was also quite good in terms of face validity, but the reliability was still low.
