Abstract
The present study aims to examine the effect of using K-pop English versions for the English listening ability and the English literacy learning attitude of middle school students in Korea. A total of 40 Korean middle school students were selected as subjects and divided into two groups (20 students for each group). K-pop English versions were adapted to the experimental group while English pop songs were adapted to the controlled group. To verify the effectiveness of K-pop English versions as English learning tools for the improvement of the listening ability and literacy learning attitude, a listening test and a questionnaire survey were administered before and after the experiment respectively. The result of the study revealed the followings: 1) Both K-pop English versions and English pop songs are very effective for the improvement of the middle school students' English listening ability. 2) K-pop English versions are more significantly positive for the English literacy learning attitude than English pop songs. These results imply that K-pop English versions would be considered as one of the most effective English learning tools for middle school students in Korea.
Key Words: K-pop;English listening ability;English literacy learning attitude
