In this article, it was examined whether learners' motivation to study English was enhanced by showing movies to the learners who seemed to lack motivation for English learning. The research was carried out by action research. The hypothesis is that learners' motivation is enhanced by showing movies to the learners. Four movies were shown to the learners in the first 15 term hours. After the movies ware shown, learners' motivation for English learning was evaluated by questionnaire. The results stated that the 60% of the learners who like studying English and also the 50% who don't, reported that watching movies made them motivated. It is thought that showing movies has the effect of enhancing the learners' motivation, even for the learners who don't like learning English. It is judged that the hypothesis is supported from this result.
