Pictures for listening comprehension achievement was very effective as one of the teaching media to assist the students to get better achievement in listening comprehension achievement. This is an Experimental study with Cluster Random Sampling Method. The pictures were used in teaching listening to the experimental group. The objective of the research was to know whether there is an influence of using pictures as English teaching media on the listening comprehension achievement of class A and D of the second year students of SLTPN 3 Tanggul in the 2004-2005 academic year. The result of the Homogeneity-test was significant and it means that the population of the research was not homogeneous. So, only two classes that had the closest mean score from the six classes were taken as the experimental and control groups by lottery. Those two classes were IIA as the experimental group and liD as the control group. The experimental group ·was taught listening comprehension by using pictures and the control group was taught listening comprehension without pictures. Because of that, the research result can be generalized to those two classes only, not to the whole classes. To achieve the research objective, listening test as post-test was done to get the main data, while interview and documentation were done to get the supporting data. The collected data were analyzed by using ttest with the significance level of 5%. The result showed that the statistical computation valued oft-test or t-empiric of listening comprehension achievement was higher than t-table or t-critic (5,28 > 2,000). The statistical computation value oft-test of listening comprehension for important details ( 4,775 > 2,000) and for main ideas (3 ,608 > 2,000) were higher than t-table. It means that there is an influence of using pictures as English teaching media on the listening comprehension achievement of class A and D of the second year students of SLTPN 3 Tanggul in the 2004-2005 academic year. Based on the results, the English teacher is suggested to consider the use of pictures as one of the teaching media in teaching English, especially in teaching listening comprehension to help the students to get better achievement in listening comprehension.
