This study was aimed to see the Improving Grammar Mastery at the tenth grade students of SMA Negeri 7 Pinrang.

As the statistical hypotheses shows, if ttest (to) > ttable (tt) in significant degree of 0.05 (5%), it means that the alternative hypothesis (Ha) is accepted and the null hypothesis (Ho) is rejected.
