Abstract

The rapid development of the internet provides many opportunities for humans to
develop, including in the field of education. This study explores the great benefits of the
internet as an online learning resource combined with students' autonomous learning for
vocabulary acquisition. This study used a quasi-experimental approach, the research subjects
were two groups who received different treatments, the experimental group used reading
materials on the internet that were selected easily based on student interests, students were
asked to make simple notes on the worksheets and do word wall activities. Meanwhile, the
control group used conventional methods for vocabulary mastery. Based on the results of the
posttest, it is known that the experimental group has better vocabulary mastery than students
in the control group, and students in the experimental group who have high autonomous
learning get better vocabulary mastery than students with low autonomous learning. The
conclusion of this study shows that reading short stories on the internet which are selected based on student interest contributes to better vocabulary mastery for students. Students with
high autonomous learning have a higher interest in exploring vocabulary mastery using short
stories on the internet. The use of the internet is able to stimulate student interest in improving
word mastery in word wall media activities. The use of the internet as a source of learning
English online is able to solve classic problems in boring language classes.
