This research was conducted by using a descriptive method. The source of the data was the teacher and students‟ activities, or behaviors during the English teaching and learning process. The data were collected with (1) Field note, (2) Observation sheet, and (3) Questionnaire. The field note contains all the activities happened in the classroom, the data were then analyzed based on four aspects defined by Xu (2010) regarding the necessity of multimedia technology implementation into English teaching. According to Xu, multimedia application is necessary to cultivate students‟ interest in study, promote students‟ communication capacity, widen students‟ knowledge to gain an insightful understanding to western culture, and improve teaching effect. The result of the study showed that multimedia application in English teaching brought more benefits than harm such as motivating students and enriching the teaching content. In line with this, students‟ perception to the use of multimedia in English teaching were mostly positive. Students were interested in the teaching and focused on the lesson. They also could understand the teacher‟s instruction and explanation well. However, multimedia application also had some disadvantages. Good management and maintenance of classroom equipment were needed for those who apply multimedia in the teaching. The teacher should be able to operate the teaching equipment well in order to avoid wasting too much time to prepare and operate the teaching equipment. Dealing with the result of the study it is suggested that (1) teachers need to have knowledge regarding multimedia and teaching equipment, (2) all the elements in the classroom, including teachers and students need to take good care of the teaching equipment.
