Abstract

As a demand of English learning, EFL for young learners in Indonesia still has gaps; namely the limitations of teaching aids. For this reason, this study was aimed to investigate how puppets could give benefits in teaching speaking to young learners and students’ responses toward the implementation. Nine seventh-grade students of Junior High School in Bandung were participated in this study. Moreover, this study employed case study as the methodology. The data included classroom observation, teacher’s field notes, and interview at the end of the teaching and learning activities. The results revealed that the use of puppets was an appropriate and effective approach in teaching speaking to young learners. It helped the teacher to teach in ease situation, particularly in engaging the students, creating great atmosphere, and organizing the class. It also created students’ high participation, helped students to speak in front of others, and encouraged students to improve their speaking ability. In other words, the use of puppet has significant influence on young learners’ speaking activities.
