Abstract


The research is conducted to find out whether teaching speaking by using cartoon movie improved students’ speaking skill. For this purpose, 40 students of class VII of SMP 19 Banda Aceh participated in this study which was divided into control and experimental class. The data were collected by using oral test (pre-test and post-test). Then, the results of the test were analysed by using t-test and speaking criteria proposed by Folse (2006). The findings (post-test of experimental and control class) revealed that t-score was higher than t-table (13.40 > 1.68) with the significant standard α = 0,05 and the degree of freedom = 38. As a result, there was a significant improvement on students’ speaking ability after they learnt with cartoon movies. In this study, the highest points of improvement were vocabulary and pronunciation, followed by grammar and fluency. It may be concluded that the use of cartoon movies improved students’ speaking ability.
