The purpose of this study is to investigate the effect of using educational websites on the first year students' achievements in English Grammar in Badr Community college to improve the quality of teaching English language. To achieve the aim of the study, a pre/post-test assessment was constructed to measure students' achievement in English grammar. The test consisted of four questions (twenty items) selected from the curriculum of the course. The participants of the study consisted of 52 students distributed on two groups enrolling in Taibah university (Badr Community college) during the academic year 2013/2014. Descriptive statistical methods were used (means and standard deviations) for pre and post- tests of students' achievement in English grammar to experimental and control groups. Results revealed that there were statistically significant differences in the achievement mean scores of the learners of the experimental group who studied the simple present via explanations found in the educational websites and the control group who studied the same grammatical item using the traditional method in favor of the experimental group. Accordingly, the researcher recommended integrating the new technologies in the syllabi and citing websites relevant to language skills and encouraging English instructors to vary their methods, techniques and ways of teaching according to students' interests.
