Keywords:Effectiveness, NHT, Achievement, Learning, English
This is a study on the effectiveness of the Number Head Together (NHT) strategy on Improving Students' English achievement. It was done to find out whether the NHT strategy could improve the students' English ability. This study is a classroom action research that was done at the XYZ School. To find out the effectiveness of the implemented strategy, then the students were tested using the English test after they were treated teaching using NHT strategy by the teacher, besides, the students were also observed. To obtain these, so there were two instruments used in this study such as; a set of English tests and an observation sheet. After all of the data were analyzed, so the finding of this study is finally drawn as that the NHT strategy is very effective to be implemented on improving the students’ English achievement at XYZ School. Where 40 students were able to achieve the minimum score criteria, 31 of the students got the "good" score category and 9 of the students got a "very good" score category. Due to this result, then the English teacher is expected to apply the NHT strategy in learning English.
