This study examined the effect of using educational YouTube videos on the seventh-grade female students’ speaking skill and their attitudes toward them. The participants of the study included 36 students joining speaking classes in the English language at Al-Fayhaa Mixed Basic School. To achieve the purposes of the study, the researchers used the quasi-experimental design. Data were collected using a questionnaire and pre/post-test. The participants have already been divided into two sections by the school administration. However, they were assigned randomly into two groups: The experimental group (20 students) and the control group (16 students). The experimental group was taught speaking skill using educational YouTube videos, while the control group was subjected to study speaking skill using the regular instruction. A pre/post-test was administered to both groups in order to find students’ results, while a questionnaire was administered to the experimental group to find students’ attitudes due to the method of teaching. Results revealed that there were statistically significant differences in students' speaking skill and its aspects due to using educational YouTube videos and students enjoyed and had positive attitudes toward using educational YouTube videos in their English-speaking classes.
