Abstract EN

Learning English can be a complex process for students in general mainly because learning a new language requires acquiring and mastering different language skills.

However, this process can be simplified through implementing useful methods in the EFL classroom.

Based on this, the present study investigated the students’ perceptions towards using interesting resources like audio visual aids in the Palestinian context.

A qualitative analysis method was used to address the research questions.

Data was collected by means of semi-structured interviews.

Throughout the course of 21 semi-structured interviews, students expressed their positive attitudes towards using audio visual aids, mainly videos and pictures in their EFL classrooms.

Students emphasized that such materials were useful in different ways, especially in improving language knowledge, enhancing the clarity of the taught material, providing variety in learning, retaining information, developing language competence and managing time.

Students recommended more exposure to audio visual aids in the language classroom due to their various benefits.
