Receptive skills, which include listening and reading, play a crucial role in language learning. This research aims to obtain a description of the improvement in student learning outcomes in receptive skills courses using the film Ya Wes Ben by Bayu Skak as a medium for students. This research uses a qualitative descriptive method with a classroom action research approach through two cycles. Each cycle consists of planning, implementation, observation, and reflection. The research objects of this study were all 1st-semester PBSI students who took the Receptive Skills course. The subject of this research is the process of learning receptive skills using the film Ya Wes Ben by Bayu Skak for PBSI students. Data collection techniques use observation, documentation, tests and interviews. The data collection used was the first-semester PBSI student learning outcomes test to improve student learning outcomes. Based on the research results, there is an increase in the receptive skills learning outcomes of PBSI semester 1 students using the film media Ya Wes Ben by Bayu Skak. This research concludes that using the film media Ya Wes Ben by Bayu Skak can improve student learning outcomes in receptive skills courses.
