Abstract: The research aimed to find out the achievement of students descriptive text writing ability by using ambiguous picture story as a media. The researcher use true experimental design, where she took two classes randomly as a control class and experimental class. The sample of this research was the students in Senior High School 3 Bandar Lampung. The instrument of the research was test. The result of T-test is 4.4572. The result of level of significant 0.05 was 2.00. It means that, it is accepted because 4.4572 > 2.00. Then it can be assumed that there is significant achievement of using this media to improve students' descriptive text writing ability.
