Abstract

Classroom Action Research (CAR) is a researcher's personal intervention to produce improvements in the results of the Student Learning Process (PBM). The purpose of this CAR is to find out the extent to which the application of Content-Based Learning and Visual Presentation methods is able to improve various aspects related to the ability to communicate in English of 46 students in English class at the Midwifery Study Program at the Faculty of Medicine, Universitas Andalas. The findings show that in the process of undergoing two cycles of research implementation, it was gradually seen that the method with a more communicative approach was able to improve various aspects related to the ability to communicate in English. Obviously increased aspects include: increased mastery of midwifery vocabulary, understanding of midwifery content, courage in speaking, ability to interact with friends, motivation to learn, critical thinking, speaking fluency, grammatical understanding, and ability to make good PowerPoint. There are several obstacles in conducting research, especially in the first cycle, such as, the topics are less debatable, the learning approaches are less varied, the topics are too numerous and the group members discuss them little so participants who attend the presentation are a bit indifferent.
