Vocabulary mastery and sentence structure are often considered to be the most challenging things in mastering English. Besides, both teacher and students are often bored on how they are explained and understood. Thus, keeping students’ motivation in learning vocabulary and sentence structure needs more effort as it should be more than just teachers’ attendance and explanation.
