The samples were 60 freshmen of Nakhon Si Thammarat Rajabhat University in the first semester of 2009. They were divided into an experimental group of 30 students treated with games, and the other 30 students in a controlled group were treated with conventional teaching method. After the seven-week teaching by the researcher, the samples of both groups were immediately assigned to do the achievement test, which was done again two weeks later in order to compare the learning retention of both groups. Before the learning retention test, the students from the experimental group completed the attitude questionnaire and were interviewed about vocabulary learning through games. Statistics and t-test were used to analyze the achievement and retention data, while statistics and data grouping were chosen for the analysis of the students’ attitude. The study discovered that the achievement and retention of the experimental group students were higher than those of the controlled group students at significant levels of .01 and .05 respectively. The games-treated students also had positive attitude toward this kind of learning.
