It is a natural thing if someone learns the other language, say, English so he/she will always be dominated or influenced by his or her native language (source language/SL) for expressing his/her feelings and ideas. An English teacher wherever he/she works or teaches has to know various methods of English teaching. He/she can choose one of the methods to be implemented at his/her school according to the existing curriculum and the condition of the students. One of the methods of English teaching that still uses native language is grammar-translation method.


The aims of the research are carried out by the writer are: to find out the grammar-translation method in the process of teaching and learning English, to find out the students’ ability in translating an English paragraph into an Indonesian paragraph, and to find out if there is any influence in the implementation of grammar-translation method on the students’ ability in translating an English paragraph into an Indonesian paragraph.


In this research, the writer uses the quantitative approach. In collecting the data, the writer uses some techniques namely: Observation, Interview, and test. To analyze the data, the writer uses the formula of product moment correlation. In addition, the writer uses some books to understand the data concerning the thesis being written to support it.


After the data have been analyzed, the writer can draw a conclusion that there is sufficient correlation between X variable and Y variable. This is because the result of the calculation of the product moment correlation is 0.60 which is categorized as “sufficient correlation”. It means this thing can be considered that there is sufficient influence of grammar-translation method on the students’ ability in translating an English paragraph into an Indonesian paragraph in a text.
