- To find out the students’ ability using articles.
- To find out the students’ attitude on using articles.
The research includes five chapters such as, Chapter 1: Introduction, Chapter 2:

Conclusion. The questionnaires were distributed in June 2020 to the students who were
studying at the Romeo English Academy.
Questionnaire was the main tool to collect the information and data. The
questionnaire was divided into 4 parts. The first part was personal information that
consists of three questions such as, gender, age and education. Second part was
students’ comprehension of using articles that consists of 7 questions. Third part was
students’ ability using articles that consists of 12 exercises and the last part was
students’ attitude on using articles that consists of 8 opinions. The tool of this research
was SPSS program version 26, whole data and analyzed as frequency and percentage.
The findings of this research, as per the collected analyzed data, we now know the
students’ comprehension and ability of using articles, how much they comprehend
about how to use articles. The results showed that most students know how to use
articles. However, they cannot identify the meaning of articles. Consequently, most of
them should be aware and pay more attention to learn and practice those using articles.
Thus, the researcher presented several recommendations and suggestions to go further
in this field.
