Nadlifan Zulfahmi, Alfu Nikmah

Abstract


This study aims to understand the effect of using movies in improving vocabulary and motivation to learn among students across different age groups in Pasucen Village, Trangkil, Pati. The research focuses on the relationship between the increase in vocabulary skill alongside motivation and the age group of the participants. Descriptive qualitative design is used as the method of the research. Data is collected through test, questionnaire and interview. The test is used to measure the vocabulary skill of the student before and after watching movies, while the questionnaire is used to know the students’ view about this method. The result shows that this method can increase the vocabulary of all students, but does not increase the motivation of all students in the same way.
