Abstract

Teaching materials play an important role in English grammar mastery for students; however, there are possibilities that teaching materials might be perceived differently by either students or teachers. This study aimed to determine the EFL students’ perception of interesting teaching materials used in learning grammar conducted at English Language Education Department of a private university in Yogyakarta. The respondents were six students who took Capita Selecta on Grammar classes. This descriptive-qualitative study employed a phenomenological approach to elaborate the findings through two stages of the study: the media of material delivery and what makes them interesting. The results showed that the respondents perceived four teaching material methods as interesting, i.e., audio-visual, audio, PowerPoint, and games. In addition, what made the materials interesting was the content, the technology used, and the delivery method. It is therefore hoped that grammar teachers are expected to be creative in developing grammar teaching materials as main supplements for the printed modules/books assigned to students to read since reading might bring about unfavourable effects such as boredom.
