The experimental group and the control group consist of 30 students each. Subjunctive and indicative moods were taught at experimental group with activities enhanced through animations suitable for 5E method; on the other hand, the same subjects were taught at control group with current teaching method.

In the quantitative analysis of the data, parametric analyses (t-test and regression analysis) have been employed as well as frequency and percentage which are descriptive computations.
