Abstract: The purpose of the current study is to investigate the impact of the overuse of audiovisual aids on EFL learner’s effective note-taking. It aims to raise teachers and learners’ awareness about the excessive usage of audiovisual tools that affects learners’ note-taking in a negative way. Thus, the study hypothesizes that if teachers and learners overuse audiovisual aids in EFL classes, students’ note taking would not to be effective. The research opts for the quantitative descriptive analytic method in order to verify the former hypothesis. Consequently, one data collection tool, a questionnaire was used. The questionnaire was administered for both First and Second Year Master students from department of English, University of 8 Mai 1945 - Guelma. It encompasses 107 students who were chosen randomly from 220 students. The derived results reveal that teachers and students are frequently relying on the use of audiovisual devices in the classroom which lead to unsatisfactory note-taking in terms of quantity and quality. Eventually, the study recommends that students should be highly aware of the right implementation of technological tools in the classroom and they should be conscious about the importance of taking effective notes in classes. In addition, teachers should be trained on how to incorporate these elements effectively in the classroom
