Young learners are excited and lively learners who tend to be more active in doing many fun activities than adult learners. At this point, to support young learners in learning English, teachers are demanded to create learning activities creatively to engage their attention. Hence, teaching media plays an important part to develop fun activities in the classroom. There are many teaching media that can be used for teaching language based on its purposes. One of them is realia. Some studies revealed that it is an interesting teaching media to bring the real situation for teaching language for young learners. The purposes of this research are to investigate how the teachers and young learners use realia and to explore the teachers‟ perceptions toward the use of realia in learning English in a private English course. This research was carried out using a qualitative method by observing two kid classes and interviewing three teachers in a private English course. The results of this research showed that realia can be used for teaching young learners, such as teaching vocabulary and assessing students‟ understanding. Based on the teachers‟ perspectives, realia brought some benefits for young learners‟ learning process in the classroom, such as helping students to engage in the learning process, maximize their multisensory English learning experience, and increase their communication skill. Furthermore, the implications and contributions of this study are providing insight into using realia to help and support the teachers in delivering materials, exploring the use of realia for teaching young learners, and using various kinds of realia. Yet, this study still has some limitations, in which, it will be richer if it was conducted in more classes and participants. For future studies, they can investigate the use of realia for teaching English skills and they might explore more of participants‟ perceptions in different settings.
