Abstract

An adjective is a part of speech that has its own significance in describing or modifying a noun or pronoun to make it specific as well as interesting. Using multiple adjectives to describe a noun, however, is confusing to ESL students as there is a certain order to be followed, which contradicts or does not even exist in their L1. At the same time, students nowadays are prone to technologies. In this era of technology advancement, the use of Google Classroom as an online tool plays an important role in education. The teaching and learning process could be enhanced as numerous features of Google are available on this blended learning platform. Therefore, the study aimed to examine the effectiveness of utilizing short videos and online games via Google Classroom in teaching the order of adjectives to the students. The participants of the study were 67 ESL students from an urban secondary school. Action research was carried out and the data was collected by the means of pre-and post-tests. It was highlighted that the results from post-tests showed an increase compared to pre-tests. The findings had proven that the integration of Google Classroom positively enhanced the teaching and learning process rather than being the conventional grammar lesson, and facilitated students to master the focused grammar rule. Therefore, Google Classroom should be seen as a viable learning tool to be implemented in ESL classrooms.
