    • Abstract:
      The purpose of this study is to shed light on a developed approach to be adopted in EFL speaking classes and show the effectiveness of using YouTube videos and Listening Audio Tracks Imitation (YATI) for teaching English language in speaking classrooms as pedagogical tools to improve EFL learners' speaking skills. To find out the impact of using You Tubes and Audio Tracks Imitation (YATI) on improving speaking skills of EFL learners, the qualitative experimental approach is used to conduct this study. The participants of this study are 48 students studying major English, divided into two sections studying Listening & Speaking Course at College of Science & Arts Muhayil, King Khalid University. One section was used as a control group and the other as an experimental group. Data was collected using speaking tests results which were analyzed using SPSS Pearson correlation coefficient. The results revealed that employing YATI technique has a positive impact on the effectiveness of the speaking skills, fluency and pronunciation of EFL learners. This study concluded that YouTube videos and Listening Audio Tracks Imitation (YATI) is a very effective CALL (Computer-Assisted Language Learning) tool towards improving students' speaking skills. This study recommends the use of YATI approach in order to help students overcome speaking problems.
