The purpose of this study is to investigate the effectiveness of videotaped instructional materials as a language-teaching aid in the foreign language classroom. A survey questionnaire was administered to analyze students' responses and attitudes towards the course and the benefits of using video materials. Two classes taught by native speakers of English were also observed by the researcher. A total of one hundred and forty students answered the questionnaire regarding their attitudes and interests toward the use of video material. The results of this study revealed that: (1) the two classes taught with the use of video materials had positive attitudes toward learning English; (2) they were generally satisfied with the classes using video materials; (3) they felt using video materials enhanced their cultural understanding as well as their listening and speaking ability, and considered culture as an important part of learning a second language; (4) they regarded the three components such as improving speaking and listening skills, cultural understanding, and improving writing skills as necessary components in learning practical English. Pedagogical implications based on the findings are then suggested.
