This study focused on the fourth grade students as subject of this study and the total number of the teacher was one teacher and two classes were observed (IV A and IV B). There were three instruments used in taking data: 1) observation; 2) questionnaire; 3) interview.

Most of the students gave positive response toward mime and gestures, examples of the type, translation techniques, and visuals. Application of those techniques was appropriate with theory and procedure of techniques of teaching English vocabulary. Considering the visuals technique was the most interesting technique from others, the teacher should vary and complete with the variations of media such as flashcards, photographs, blackboard drawing, and wallcharts in applying visuals technique because it made students understand the material quickly. In contrast, the students’ perception toward contrasts and opposites and scales technique was negative. Majority of the students had negative perception toward those techniques because it made passive class. Besides, it made the students get bored in doing activities and confused toward teacher’s explanation. The way the teacher apply those techniques was not appropriate with theory of techniques of teaching English vocabulary. In applying contrasts and opposite technique, the teacher should have given more chance to students to avoid passive class. Besides, in applying scales technique, the teacher should have used a blackboard thermometer when the teacher explained certain words about scale. It was to assist the students to grasp the meaning of new words easily.
