ABSTRACT

The present study aimed to investigate the effects of using animated movies on English listening according to university students’ language proficiency. Sixty-four Korean university students participated in this study and were asked to watch animated movies and practiced English listening as assignments every week. The effects of animated movies were examined in terms of the participants’ pre- and post- listening tests and perceptions. The data from the survey was included to supplement the findings of quantitative data. First, the findings of listening performance obtained from the pre- and the post-tests showed that there was a significant difference after the treatment only to the lower-level group. Second, with regard to the students' proficiency levels, there was significant difference between the two levels in Part 1 of the mock TOEIC test while there were no statistically significant differences in Part 2 and Part 3. Third, both groups reported more positive than negative feedbacks to English listening practice through animated films. Pedagogical implications and limitations for further studies are presented.
