Abstract

The rule of magnet is the basic condition of every magnet. It has north and south poles.  When the north pole of one magnet is closed to the south pole of another magnet, they will pull each other. On the opposite, when north pole is closed to north pole, or south pole is closed to south pole, they will repel each other. These basic rules of magnet can be applied to help students to understand developing English sentence predicate, especially when the sentences are the result of translation from Bahasa Indonesia. The translation result is sometimes not accepted grammatically. It seems that our students still making mistakes when it comes to use helping verbs and main verbs in their sentences.  This study is to propose the option of using magnet rules as a teaching trick to help students making sentences in English grammatically by using analogy of magnet rules for main verbs and helping verbs in English.
