Ahmad Bataineh, Fatima Al-madi, Juhaina Al-Issawi


This study aimed to investigate the effect of Video-Mediated Communication (VMC) on 7th Grade EFL students’ para-linguistic competence and attitude. The study sample consisted of thirty 7th-grade students at AL Manbar Privet School at Al-Mafraq during 2019/2020.  The study sample was divided equally into two groups: an experimental and a control group. The control group was taught using a paper textbook, whereas the experimental group was taught using the VMC strategies. The study’s findings indicated that using VMC in language teaching and learning significantly affects developing students’ para-linguistic competence and attitude. However, the experimental group performed better than the control group in speaking due to the new method of using VMC. The results also showed that the experimental group has a positive attitude toward VMC, which might be due to using the VMC strategies through which the experimental group students have developed their para-linguistic competence and attitude.
