Zahira Jihan Amir, Candra Hadi Asmara


YouTube is one of the medias currently used by various groups, one of which is used in online learning. YouTube is also one of the learning media that suits the fast-paced learning styles of today's young people who use the internet in everyday life. There are millions of educational videos uploaded every day to YouTube, which makes it easier for students and teachers to find reference videos that can be used in the learning process according to the topic being studied. Foreign language teachers, especially English teachers in Thailand, can use videos from YouTube such as phonic sounds and minimal paired videos for teaching. With this video, Thai students can learn the basics of how to pronounce a word correctly. Using YouTube pronunciation videos, Thai students can learn how to pronounce English sounds correctly or at least can be understood because of learning from native speakers. The method used in this research is a two-phase mixed design method with an explanatory design type. The data obtained from this study are based on filling out questionnaires and interviews. The analysis in this study used quantitative and qualitative methods. Based on quantitative analysis, it is known that 100% of students agree with learning using YouTube media. Meanwhile, the qualitative analysis found that learning using YouTube videos was very fun and interesting for students. With this research, learning English becomes fun and not monotonous for students. In this study, learning English, especially in the pronunciation section, was not something that was scary for students.
