Understanding English vocabulary is the “soul” of the English learning itself. By getting this, the learners are not only able to learn and get information more, but also able to get the core concept the learning process which will help them and others in learning everything, including English. When someone sees or reads a sign in English around him and he understands well with the meaning of the sign, for example, he sees a sign of “cross P” which means “don’t park here”, he will know what he will do then by not parking on that area. There is no English lesson in Elementary level based on Curriculum 2013, because English is given on 7th grade. A material is chosen randomly; it is Chapter VIII “Attention Please!”. It is an Experimental Research study. The Experimental group is students (santri) of “TPQ Al Barokah”, while the Control Group is students of “TPQ Baitussalam”. Those TPQs are placed in Semarang. Those informal schools are chosen because English is being an extra material given among the main material they get in learning Al Qur’an. Previously, the writer conducted the similar research activity 2 years ago. Now, she wants to measure the effectiveness of PORTEK to teach vocabulary. The result of the research taken from the mean of Experimental Group which taught using PORTEK is increased 5.49% from 11.2% on 2012 to be 16.67% now. The writer concludes that PORTEK is still effective to use to increase students’ understanding of English vocabulary. Key Words: PORTEK, English vocabulary, warning or caution signs
