The sample consists of a number of grade XII students of three vocational high schools in Duren Sawit District East Jakarta in academic year 2012-2013. The data is analyzed by applying descriptive statistic analysis, correlation analysis and multiple regression analysis. The hypothesis is examined by conducting t-test and F-test. From the hypothesis test, it is gained that R2=0.804, F-test of parents’ role (X1) and learning motivation (X2) is 172.948. The multiple regression equation which is obtained is ? = 0.223 + 0.305 X1 + 0.479 X2. R2 = 0.804 indicates that both parents’ role (X1) and learning motivation (X2) collectively affect 80.4% upon vocabulary mastery, whereas the rests are the influences of another factors. The effect of parents’ role partially is significant because t observe > t table (5.792 > 1.67). The effect of learning motivation partially is significant because t observe> t table (11.168 > 1.67).
