Abstract
second language acquisition is a difficult process. Negotiation is one way to improve L2 acquisition. Conversation, game and using picture during negotiation process are useful. In this study, attempt to provide some material to induce how negotiation influences on L2 acquisition. Then, a questionnaire is used to ask learners about the process of L2 acquisition. A pre -test is administered to measure the student’s language proficiency. Students are divided into control and experimental group .Then different practices were given to the experimental group and at least a post-test is administrateredto measure students’ progress. Conclusion shows the students learned English during practices. A t- test is used to calculate differences between post-test and pre-test. It is recommended to use this method in elementary levels.
