Abstract

This study aims at the students’ perception towards the exploitation of popular songs in
motivating lower secondary school students in learning English language. The process of
teaching and learning should be made enjoyable, meaningful and most of all, purposeful.
This is the most important step of gaining the interest of students. In the case of teaching
English language, teachers often do not realize the importance of the aspect of listening
and thus take it for granted. Activities based on listening, ranging from listening to verbal
instructions from the teacher to the listening from text reading of peers, are not
challenging and authentic enough. 50 students of Sekolah Menengah Kebangsaan Tun
Tijah, Melaka, were chosen as respondents, in which they were required to complete a
questionnaire adapted from Chung-Chen & Ching Chen (2009). Findings gathered from
the questionnaire indicate that the students perceive the method positively.
