Being able to use English is the value of communication that students must have. Many students’ especially Indonesian students are still lacking in communicating using English. As teachers, we must facilitate students to be able to learn students' communicative competence. Therefore, in this study the researchers tried to use board games as learning media for students' communicative competence. Board games can create conditions that make students communicate easier to do.

This research method uses quantitative methods. The results of this study are the average value of the control class is 0.17, while the average value of the experimental class is 0.71.
