Abstract

Media can assist teaching and learning process. There is a number of various alternative media which could be possibly used by teachers in the classroom activities. Using media in teaching will give positive atmosphere and facilitate the students in understanding the material. Most of teachers prefer using visual media rather than other types of the aids. It also occurs in EFL classrooms. They suggest it is the simplest and most affordable aids. This present study was aimed at investigating the relationship between students’ visual-spatial intelligence and English learning achievement. 26 students of the State Elementary School 1 of Secang, Magelang were assigned as the participants. Data were students’ visual-spatial intelligence profile obtained through questionnaire which consisted of 25 items of Telee MI inventory test and achievement scores were gathered from their summative scores. Simple linier regression analysis was employed to analyze the data. The value of R=0.562 and the coefficient of determination (Rsquare) counted to 0.426 while the coefficient results showed a significance value of 0.000<0.05. The results revealed that visual-spatial intelligence of the participants had significant positive relationship with the English learning achievement.It means that the use of visual media in the classroom activities contributes to the students’ comprehension on the provided materials.Regarding that, the English teachers may proceed to use visual media in their teaching.
