Aphasia occurs due to damage to the brain. People with aphasia have language difficulties. This study aims to determine the language difficulties suffered by aphasia broca fighters. This study uses a qualitative descriptive method based on observation through video. This study uses 2 videos to observe, both videos are sourced from a speech-language pathologist and a teenager with Broca's aphasia. The results of the observations from the two videos are that people with Broca's aphasia have difficulty saying what they want to say, they say one or two words that represent what they want to convey. But they understand what is being said and their memory is quite good.
