Abstract

This research article explains how to use the You Tube application to enhance listening skills in junior high school students. The pre-test post-test experimental and pre-test post-test control methods are used in this research. A total of 120 Junior High School students in Kemayoran, Jakarta were included in the study, with a research sample of 25 students composed of 12 students from class VII A (the control class) and 13 students from class VII B (the experimental class). A random sampling technique is used to choose samples. A multiple choice test was used in this study to collect data in the form of student scores. The data was then examined using descriptive statistics and paired simple t-test statistical analysis in SPSS (t-test). The average pre-test experimental group listening skills score was 66.54, while the average post-test experimental group listening skills score was 83.08. The average pre-test listening skills score for the control group was 39.17, while the average post-test listening skills score was 56.25. The hypothesis was then tested using the t-test, specifically the paired simple t-test, which showed that the significant value (2-tailed) is 0.000 0.05, indicating a significant change. According to the findings of the study, there is a significant difference in listening skills between students who use YouTube media in class and students who do not use media in class.
