Abstract

Abstract. Vocabulary is considered one of the most important aspects in ELT. Without vocabulary, there will be nothing to be conveyed in the sense of form and meaning. Despite its importance, in some EFL countries like Indonesia, the teaching and learning of vocabulary depends mostly on prescribed text books which are less authentic and provide only a few of examples of contextual language use. This study analyses the impact of using English movies to facilitate vocabulary meaning recognition of Indonesian EFL learners. The participants of this study were 26 students of English Department in Universitas Bandar Lampung, Lampung, Indonesia. The participants were given vocabulary pre-test to see their prior vocabulary knowledge. After the pre-test, the participants took part in four-session movie class where they watch ‘The Social Network’, a movie about the invention of Facebook, to acquire and understand the targeted vocabulary items. After three weeks, the participants did another test to assess their understanding towards the vocabulary items. The results of both pre-test and post-test were compared. The findings show that watching English movies help EFL learners to retain vocabulary meaning. Keywords: Vocabulary, Meaning Recognition, EFL Learners, Audio-visual, The Social Network.
