Abstract: Our dissertation aim to investigate about the effectiveness of using illustrative gestures as a teaching strategy to develop student’s understanding in middle schools because they are beginners, and in this stage they face a serious problem to understand the meaning of words and depict what their teacher wants to say, because it is a new language for them. Also this investigation leads us to discover teacher’s positive standpoints about the use of illustrative gestures. Firstly, we formulate one main hypothesis; using teacher’s illustrative gestures in teaching would be helpful to develop English as a foreign language student understanding. To achieve such an aim, we relied on two means of research, the teacher’s and student’s questionnaires. The teacher’s questionnaire was chosen to collect data about the techniques they use when they teach, for our study, student organized the main extent of illustrative gestures on student’s comprehension. In this study we used descriptive method which is the appropriate method to collect and analyze data. The results showed that students are able to develop their understanding through illustrative gestures. Also they have manifested a great enthusiasm within this technique while teaching them. In addition, all teachers agree with the effectiveness of this technique as a teaching strategy.
