Abstract

Vocabulary is one of the core components of a language. Its mastery is very significant to enable one’s interaction and communication within the community so that the messages conveyed can be channeled properly and the communication can be effective. Therefore, the vocabulary has always been an interesting study to learn, without exception in Arabic. This paper explores how vocabulary can be obtained through cartoons. Cartoon is a form of entertainment product attractive for various circles, including children, teenagers or adults for its fun content. Beginners of Arabic learn can acquire Arabic vocabulary naturally through cartoon. Current researches deal with the effectiveness of cartoon movies in foreign language classroom. However, how cartoon movies in short duration can affect one’s vocabulary acquisition still needs more exploration. The method used in this study is qualitative descriptive with data collection technique of observation and interview. The, results show that cartoons can be an effective bridge between novelty of the vocabulary and learner’s acquisition for beginners who never had a history of previous Arabic learning. As the implication, the use of cartoon as audiovisual language stimuli is recommended for Arabic language acquisition particularly of those from elementary level.
