Abstract:   (5560 Views)
In general, Malaysian schools teach English as a second language. Many people consider English essential as it is a global language now. Therefore, students need to be competent users to be able to cope with the era of globalisation. However, it has always been a challenge when it comes to writing. This study attempts to investigate the effectiveness of pictures in helping students to write. This research is a quasi-experimental design which involved 34 Year 6 students in a suburban primary school in Seremban. The instruments used are two writing tasks and a Likert scale questionnaire containing 16 items to obtain students' perception of the use of pictures. The comparison of scores from the writing tasks indicated an improvement when the teacher uses pictures to teach writing. The analysis of the questionnaire showed a positive response from the respondents on the use of pictures in helping them to write. They also agreed that teachers should use pictures more often during the teaching and learning process.
