Applying storytelling as one of the language teaching strategies has become an interesting issue as previous studies have convincingly shown its effectiveness. To respond to low students’ listening performance of eight grade of Sekolah Menengah Pertama (SMP) 3 PSKD, a two-cycled action research was systematically employed.Initial students’ listening ability, taken through a 20-objective-items test, which met the success criterion was 36.00%. After applying the storytelling technique, the listening skill got improved. There are found 40.75% of the participants achieving the success criterion, or 4.75% higher than the initial one. More interestingly, the post-test of the second cycle of the action research results developed almost twice higher than the previous post-test result, or 41% better than of the initial listening performance. With reference to its effectiveness in teaching and learning listening skill, the observation results showed that an interactive and interesting teaching atmosphere were more likely achievable through the storytelling application. Therefore, it is suggested to consider the application of storytelling in EFL learning in Indonesian contexts. To respond to this, identification of local histories and storytelling application strengthened by teaching policy at schools are worthy.
