Studying English as a foreign language, makes learning English difficult to understand, coupled with grammar that is complicated and far different from our native language, Indonesian. The formulation patterns found in grammar usually have to be memorized by students, but most students memorize just to be able to answer questions in English lessons only. The formulation in grammar usually forms a monotonous pattern that is difficult to memorize. The activity of changing the formula contained in English grammar into words, sentences, and abbreviations that is unique and funny will form an anti-language that can be created by students in accordance with the creativity of each student. This research is an experimental study with a control and intervention group where the use of anti-language methods is carried out on a temporary intervention group in the control group, not given any treatment. Data collection using pretest and posttest was done to the intervention group and the control group. The data obtained were analyzed using univariate analysis and independent T-test.
