 This study will attempt to determine the role of educational games on learning a foreign language for non-English Department student at Islamic University of Indonesia. It will be an experimental research conducted using two groups (one group as the experimental group and one group as the controlled group). To determine the relationship between learning a foreign language and educational games among the participants, a one way Analysis of Variance (ANOVA) is performed based on achievement levels. The researcher will show that the results of the post test for the experimental group are so better than the controlled one which shows that games have a good effect on improving the achievement for the non-English Department student and to create an interactive environment. Therefore, it will be much recommended to use games since they are very effective especially for the non-English Department student in teaching a second language and games are helpful for the lecturer as a procedure for language acquisition.
