The proficiency of learners’ listening comprehension will often determine their proficiency in other language skills. Listening skill has not be emphasized on in the previous Primary School Standard Curriculum. By implementing the New Educational Blueprint (2013-2025), the Malaysian Ministry of Education (MoE) is putting more emphasis on listening and speaking skills. The study was conducted a study to see the effects of having visual stimulus on the learners’ listening comprehension during a listening task. Employing Kemmis and Mactaggart’s model, the study was designed to be an action research project for the period of 2 weeks. A total of 47 participants, aged 9, from a primary school in Negeri Sembilan were recruited, comprising a control group (n=22) and a treatment group (n=25). A pretest was conducted for both the experimental and control group. After the pretest, the experimental group went through six intervention sessions in two weeks which took one hour per session. Based on the data analysis, the result shows that the experimental group outperformed the control group. The study suggests that the participants’ listening comprehension improved with visual stimulus. Fellow educators can adapt the intervention used in this study to conduct listening comprehension tasks to ensure the efficiency of their lesson.
