Mellynia Chandra Pratama, Nuri Ati Ningsih, Arri Kurniawan


The goal of this research is to investigate the effect of YouTube videos as a learning medium on the speaking skills of eighth grade students. A quasi-experimental design is used in the experimental research. There were two groups in this study: experimental and control. This is done to see which group is the most effective at assisting students with their speaking skills. This study's participants were eighth-grade students at SMPN 2 Geger. The speaking test was assigned to both groups. The data was analyzed using the Independent t-test. The study's findings show a significant difference between students who used YouTube videos to teach and students who did not. Students who were taught using YouTube outperformed students who were not. It follows that using YouTube videos to teach speaking is recommendable to assisting students to enhance their speaking skill.
