The application of technology particularly computer games give students the opportunity to practice using English, as well as increasing students' interest in participating in classroom activities. In the process of applying this technology the development of the ability of students' vocabulary mastery can be seen. In short, this study shows that the application of technology raises a positive impact on students in the learning process in the classroom.
