Abstract

The purpose of this research is to utilise the picture superiority effect and iconic pictures to help students study idioms and assist in memorisation. The participants consist of 12 students of Semester 1 from Politeknik Kuching Sarawak. The participants were studying Communicative English DUE10012. They were required to take an online pre-quiz on idiom usage in sentences. Afterward, they were interviewed about their problems faced when studying idioms. Then the participants underwent the intervention and a post-quiz was administered. Before taking the post-quiz the students answered a survey on their experience using the intervention. After taking the post-quiz the participants were interviewed on their experience using the intervention. Data collected from the interview was analysed manually taking into consideration the value, mean,, and percentage based on the objective. The findings of the research shows that students have positive feedback about iconic pictures and their post-quiz scores show a general increase in their quiz scores. We hope the use of iconic pictures can be improved upon by conducting further research.
