The purpose of this study was to examine the perceptions of Year 6 learners on explicit and implicit teachings of Past Tense verb rules. It also aimed to find out the learners’ point of view towards both teaching methods in helping them to write. For the purpose of this study, a pre–test, a number of treatments lessons, a post–test, and an interview were conducted on twenty selected Year 6 learners in Sekolah Kebangsaan Bandar Seri Alam (1). It is discovered that explicit teaching of grammar rules works effectively better on second language learners due to several reasons; lack of confidence, feeling insecure and examination. In addition to that, from the interview conducted with the selected learners, it is established that the learners put more favor in explicit teaching of grammar rules, due to the fact that they need to construct grammatically correct sentences in examination. More to the point, results gained from the post tests have clearly shown that learners in taught using explicit teaching method performed better compared to those taught using implicit teaching method.
