The current study aimed to examine the impact of using videos on students’ listening learning and their attitudes towards using videos in listening learning. The study was conducted with 71 participants in two groups in Foreign Languages and Informatics Center of PPC II (People’s Police College II). The first group of 35 students worked with 10 audio recordings, while the second group of 36 students worked with 10 videos in a 10-week treatment. The listening materials for both groups had the same scripts. Although there was no statistically significant difference in the pre-test between the two groups, the statistics of the post-test shows that the EG (experimental group) outperformed the CG (control group) in listening comprehension. Besides, the data from the questionnaire indicates that the participants had positive attitudes towards using videos in listening learning. These findings could be explained by visual elements of the teaching materials. Therefore, it was suggest to use videos in listening learning to promote students’ listening comprehension.
