Abstract

The rapid development of smartphone technology and the teachers’ lack of capability in getting attention from students in learning process may lead to passive and boring English practices in the classroom. Therefore, this study was aimed at investigating LINE Webtoon as possible teaching media that facilitate teachers to teach English in a fun way and investigating the teachers and students’ perceptions toward the use of LINE Webtoon in English as Foreign Language (EFL) classroom. This study employed mixed-method design involving interview and closed-item questionnaire as the instruments to gain the data which were administered to three English teachers and 35 secondary school students as respondents. The findings revealed that the use of LINE Webtoon contributes to the teachers’ creativity in providing authentic media and material and also creating fun learning activities. The findings also indicated that the use of LINE Webtoon creates good and active classroom atmosphere and the students’ responses are mostly positive where they become more motivated and interested in learning English as they have fun accessing it. However, teachers are expected to be more selective in choosing comics in terms of its content and word choices and also to be more creative in handling low achievement students in the classroom.
