Multimodality in teaching listening is applying the combination of more than one semiotic mode analysis the students can use in understanding meaning of language expressed in listening. This study aimed to implement multimodal analysis in teaching ESP listening skill for civil engineering students and analyze whether the use of verbal and visual combined modes helps students in developing their listening skill or not. If so, how video helps students in analyzing the meaning of the words they hear from verbal mode. To accomplish the objectives of the study, data from listening test, interview and class observation were gathered. To analyze the data, both quantitative and qualitative methods were involved. The result showed positive responses from majority of respondents. Multimodality analysis in this study was well implemented. The important point is that the study found multimodal analysis could boost students’ ESP listening skill and improve their comprehension. The use of pictures and dynamic pictures in the video really aid the students to understand the meaning of the words they heard. Furthermore, students made a longer list of technical words when they were exposed to verbal and visual combined mode compared to verbal mode only.
