    Abstract: This experimental study discusses the effectiveness of a combination of inductive and deductive approaches, i.e. inductive-deductive approaches in teaching English grammar to students of English Education Study Program Sriwijaya University. This study also compares the combined approach with both approaches, inductive and deductive, used separately. Samples of 25 students in experimental group, which were taught using inductive-deductive approaches, and 25 students in control group, which are taught using inductive and deductive separately, are taken purposively from the population of 320 students in English Education study Program Sriwijaya University. The pretest-posttest control group design was used in which both group are given same pre-test and post-test but treated differently to see and compare the results. Two instruments were used, a grammar test covering four topics: modals, passive, noun clause and adjective clause, and a questionnaire measuring students’ perception toward the approaches. T-test was used to see and compare the result of pre-test and post-test in both groups and post-test in between groups. The result of the questionnaire was analyzed qualitatively. The result in both group shows that there are significant different in between pre-test and post-test, but when post-test from both groups are compared, no significant different is shown. From the finding it is concluded that the inductive-deductive approach is effective in teaching grammar to the students although the result from other approaches are fairly similar. The result of the questionnaire shows that most students expect that inductive-deductive approach is engaged in other grammar classes. Key Words: Teaching, Grammar, Inductive, Deductive
