Abstract. Audiovisual Translation or subtitling is one of alternative in learning a foreign
language. It is a new educational tool and ideas. It offers variety and flexibility, contextualizes
linguistic items, provides exposure to cultural and nonverbal elements, and is closer to natural
ideal communication than the written or oral modes. In this article, we provide the learning
experiences design implemented in subtitling course taught in the sixth semester of the Degree
in English Language Education Program of IAIN Surakarta, in Indonesia, and we examine the
tasks and technique implementation in the classroom. Specifically, we pay attention more on
Project-Based Learning (PBL) and review from colleague in the subtitling course. The
discussion of both students’ performances and their reactions to the new learning experiences is
the main results.
