Abstract

Listening plays a vital role in EFL classes. With the advance of technology nowadays, teachers can use more than one means - namely multimodality - as a tool of instruction. This study is aimed to discover whether audio or video modality is more beneficial for EFL students in listening comprehension. It used the post-test control group design to measure the participants' performances with regard to the different types of modality in listening comprehension test. The participants, 50 students of English Department of a private university in Greater Jakarta area, were given two types of test: Audio listening test (ALT) and Video listening test (VLT). The analysis used quantitative method - t-test in SPSS program - which compared the results of two kinds of the test. The findings show that there is a significant difference between the results of ALT and those of VLT. It suggests that VLT provides better scores compared to ALT scores.
