Abstract

This paper reports on non-specialist undergraduate English learners' perceptions about the use of video project in learning English, which was adopted to counter students’ low English learning motivation. Data were collected from the first-semester students of Hinduism Education Department in a state university in Indonesia.

Video production was used to enable the learners to use English actively and improve learners’ motivation to learn English in the future by promoting the learner’s sense of achievement. Using a questionnaire and interview, the researcher obtained data on students’ perceptions of the use of video project in learning English.

The learners also reported that video production improved their confidence in their English and increased their motivation (dimension mean of 4.17). Lastly, the learners considered video production as a feasible, enjoyable, and affordable way to learn English (dimension mean of 4.29).
