Background of the Study  Teaching English nowadays has become more challenging than ever. In order to help the learners’ mastery (increase the proficiency) of language skills, language teachers have to provide quality teaching materials that will be engaging, interesting, up-to-date while simultaneously being a tool that will ensure that the students learn. Many scholars have revealed that movies used in EFL classroom can  become an important part of the curriculum. This is based on the fact that movies  provide exposures to “real language,” used in aut hentic settings and in the cultural context which the foreign language is spoken. They also have found that movies catch the learners’ interest and it can positively affect their motivation to learn (Kusumarasdyati, 2004; Luo, 2004). For too long listening has been relegated to a secondary position in the English language teaching classroom. This stems, in part, from the fact that whereas a considerable amount of research has been conducted into reading, writing and speaking--research which has influenced our approaches to teaching language and has also influenced how textbooks have been written. There has  been a lack of research interest into listening. Some of the reasons for his lack of  research interest come from the fact that speaking was always considered a more "valuable" skill to focus on in the classroom; that researchers and teachers have often considered that listening was something which could just be "picked up"; and as researchers and teachers had not been taught listening themselves, they saw little need for developing a specific research agenda or approaches to teaching listening. It is indeed interesting that listening has not received wider attention in the  past given that it is the language skill most often used in everyday life. More than forty percent of our daily communication time is spent on listening, thirty-five  percent on speaking, sixteen percent on reading, and only nine percent on writing (Burely-Allen 1995). Although listening has been a relatively neglected skill in terms of research and how it is introduced to language learners, it is now beginning to receive more attention. In the past few years we have seen the publication of several major texts, both practical and theoretical, specifically dealing with listening skills: Mendelson and Rubin 1995; Nunan and Miller 1995; Buck 2000; Rost 2002; Flowerdew and Miller, in press. In conjunction with these books, there is now a greater awareness among teachers that we have to help learners develop their listening skills, rather than rely on the skill developing itself. Based on the stating the problem above, the researcher interested in investigating the students’  perception on watching English movies in listening comprehension ability at first semester English major University of Islam Malang 2017/-2018. It is realized that there are some students who have low level in listening because of lack of interest.  1.2.
