Nowadays, English as an international language becomes the second language in this country and is taught in every grade of school. However, most of the students still get difficulties in learning English, especially vocabulary which becomes the main problem for the student in learning English. Based on this problem, this research was intended to improve the students’ active participation and vocabulary achievement by using flashcards at SMPN 4 Jember. The research was designed as Classroom Action Research (CAR) and the students of class VIII-B were as the subject. The data collection methods used were vocabulary test and observation which was analyzed quantitatively. As a result, there were 69.69% students who achieved the target score which was 75 in cycle 1 and it improved into 76.47% students in cycle 2. Besides, the result of the students’ active participation was improved from 63.23% students in cycle 1 to 79.41% students in cycle 2. It means that the use of flashcards can improve the students’ active participation and also their vocabulary achievement.
