English Abstract

This study aims at investigating the role of video in teaching English as a foreign language to kindergarten students. It also aims to show the disadvantages of using traditional teaching methods for teaching kindergarten student. The study sample consisted of 32 students (18 males) and (14 females) who are between the ages of four and five from one of the private schools in Amman, Jordan. The researcher divided the sample of the study into two groups: the first group is a control group which is taught by a traditional method and comprised 17 students. The second group is an experimental group which is taught by showing five educational videos to kindergarten students and consisted of 15 students. In order to achieve the objectives of the study, the researcher used two instruments: the first instrument is a post-test applied to both groups and the second is interviews with the head of the kindergarten and four English teachers. The findings revealed that video plays a significant role in teaching English as a foreign language to KG-1 students. In light of these results, some recommendations are suggested including: 1- The use of educational videos as an instructional tool to teach kindergarten students because of its great benefits in the teaching process 2- Teachers should prepare well for the use of effective videos in the EFL classroom 3- Adopting new curriculum, which implements video as an instructional tool for teaching kindergarten students, by Ministry of Education
