Specifically, in this study, there were two groups of participants: The Group A Learning through TPR, this was the experimental group, and Group B -learning without TPR which was the control group. The result of Group B showed no significant difference between the pre-test and post-test score. In contrast, Group A showed significant difference between the pretest and posttest score after practicing the vocabulary through TPR. As-a-result, the researcher concludes that TPR is an excellent teaching methodology that helped these first-grade students to increase their amount of vocabulary in English, specifically about ‘Animals in the Farm’. Besides, this researcher can affirm that the results obtained in the behavioral chart demonstrated that the TPR methodology helps students to learn vocabulary in a fun and friendly way".
