Grammar is the mental of rules and categories that allows humans to form and interpret the words and sentences of the language. Grammar can also be regarded as a necessary “master” skill that enables competence to develop in the areas of listening, speaking, reading and writing. When grammar is incorrect or misunderstood in any of these areas, communication may disrupt. In teaching grammar, the teacher should give some grammar activities to evaluate their comprehending. Sometimes, the students felt bored with it. Therefore, the teacher should establish conditions which make teaching grammar interesting. The use of computer can motivate the students to learn because the audio-visual is more joyful and more interesting to be a teaching media. Hot Potatoes Authoring Software Program is one of teaching media to create computerized grammar exercises such as gap filling, multiple choice, and matching exercise.
