The findings of this research show that: 1) the learners need supplementary listening materials which  can  attract  their  curiosity,  interest  and  attention  to  motivate  them  in learning; 2) the materials are interesting and easy to use based on the result of the expert judgement; 3) the application of QR codes in  developing supplementary listening materials can be in the form of the attachment of audio, video, document, or other types of files to give the learners ease of access. The product of this research is a self-instructional textbook completed with QR codes to improve listening  skill  in  English.  From  the  expert  judgement  questionnaires,  it  is concluded that the textbook is categorized as “Good” to be used as self- instructional supplementary listening materials.
