    Abstract

    This study dealt with teaching using flashcards to improve young learners‟ interest in English learning. The objective of the study is to find in what way the use of flash card can increase young learners‟ interest in learning English. This way, hopefully would be useful for teachers and students in language teaching and learning process. In order to achieve the objective of this study, I used classroom action research in doing the research. The population of this study was the 26 fifth graders of SD Negeri 01 Tahunan Jepara. There were two cycles in this study. Cycle 1 was conducted in three meetings. In this cycle, the students were drilled about kinds of job. Furthermore, cycle 2 was conducted in two meetings. In this cycle, the students made simple identification of clothing. There were three types of the test in this action research. They were pre-test, formative test, and post-test. The test was related to the kinds of cloth and kinds of job. In pre-test and post-test, the test was about kinds of job and their features. In formative test, the test was about arranging the jumbled alphabets into the right name of cloth. The result of the study showed that the post-test scores were better than the pre-test scores and formative scores. It could be seen by comparing their means. The means of the pre-test score was 61,92. The means of formative test score was 70, 76 while the post-test score was 76,57. It means that there is a significance difference in students‟ scores after they were given treatments using flashcards. The increasing achievements show the increasing interest of the students. The higher achievement of the students after being taught by using flashcards as medium indicates that the treatment was effective. So, it is recommended that the teacher can use flashcards as media in teaching young learners to increase their interest in learning English. Hopefully there would be further studies in teaching English using other technique
