Abstract: This study investigates the relationship between students' out-of-class language learning activities and Senior High School Students’ English language achievement. This study is a correlational study in which questionnaire and English test were used as the instrument. The study was conducted to 71 tenth and eleventh graders students of SMA Negeri 1 Tempeh. Spearman rank correlation coefficient formula was used to know the correlation between two variables. The findings showed that the correlation coefficient (rxy) was .757 which then interpreted by rtable .234 using 5% of significant. It meant that there was a positive significant correlation between two variables. Thus, this study reveals that the higher the score of the student’s Out-of-class Language Learning Activities (OCLLA), the higher scores of the English language achievement they get. From this result, further researchers who are interested in conducting the similar study are suggested to conduct a study using ex post facto to reveal cause and effect relationship.
