This study focused on the effect of using captioned video on students’ listening comprehension of the second grade students of SMA LaboratoriumUnsyiah. Quantitative method with experimental study of two groups, pretest-posttest design, was undertaken in this study. The data was obtained from listening test and interview involving 24 second grade students at class XI IPA 2 as a control group (CG), and 24 second grade students at class XI IPS as anexperimental group (EG). The data was analyzed using both descriptive and inferential statistics; the results indicated that using captioned videos had a significant effect on the listening comprehension of the students.The results of Independent Sample t-test indicated that the experimental group outperformed the control group in the post-test. The descriptive statistics showed that there was a clear mean difference between the control and experimental groups.In other words, captioned video helps students excel more in listening comprehension than non-captioned video. Therefore, the use of captioned videos can be one of alternative teaching media used by the teacher in teaching English particularly in improving students’ listening comprehension achievement.
