ABSTRACT

Communication remains one of the ultimate objectives of learning any language. Speaking is one of the most basic language skills that should be well mastered by foreign language learners. It is considered one of the most complex aspects of language learning, especially for beginners. The use of pictures in language has been accredited to immense success and improvement in language learning. Therefore, this study aims at investigating the effectiveness of using “picture media” in improving the speaking skills of a group of 20 Indonesian, non-native Arabic speakers. In order to collect data, a combination of two methods was used namely, observation and a questionnaire designed for the purpose of examining the effectiveness of using pictures as a teaching aid. The findings of this study confirmed that picture media is an indispensable component in improving Arabic speaking skills immensely. The analysis revealed that the subjects of this study reported better results after pictures use.
