The monotonous teaching style carried out by teachers or lecturers tends to make students feel bored. The communication culture using memes is rapidly growing on social media can inspire and can be used to attract the attention of the audience in the learning process. Currently, many accounts provide educational-themed memes, considering that social media is the most accessible tool for everyone, including students, to get information. By utilizing pragmatic-semiotic, this study aims to describe and analyze how symbols in educational-themed memes, especially linguistics and English, can influence the audience to understand, namely Netizens. This study used the descriptive qualitative method. During the interval, data collection uses the listen-to method without being directly involved in netizen conversations. The results of this study indicate a positive response and active discussion among netizens responding to the meme. Some memes discuss the differences between Old English and Modern English, accents, tenses, syntax, etymology, phonetics, pragmatics, homonyms, and language variations. Some netizens who couldn't catch the idea in the meme chose to ask. Meanwhile, the meme creators and netizens who understand the idea in memes explain to those who ask. This proves that memes can help netizens understand the concepts more easily because an idea that needs a long explanation can be represented by a single meme.
