This study used qualitative research. Questionnaires and interviews served as the instruments. Findings showed that the students have a positive perception of audiovisuals because the use of audiovisuals in learning listening skills makes it easier for students to understand the material provided and interact with friends during the lesson. Audio-visual media is attractive, effective, relevant, and motivating for students in listening activities
