Abstract

In the global era, communication between one and the other country is very important. To make it easy we should master the international language where most of people in this world use it. Sometimes, people get difficulty in speaking the foreign language. This makes them get difficulty to say their smart ideas, opinions, agreements, disagreements or whatever they want. A lot of people in Indonesia are not able to speak English fluently because commonly English is only taught in schools or courses. Consequently, not all people are able to speak English well. People who can study in schools or courses sometimes also get difficulties in English speaking because of many factors. One of them is their Intelligence Quotient or IQ. It is believed that students with high IQ are able to speak English better than students with low IQ. The purpose of the study is to see whether there is any positive correlation between students’IQ and their speaking ability in the third year of SMU Widya Dharma Turen-Malang 2002-2003 or not. To get the data, the researcher gave the students a speaking test on September 17,2002. The number of the population is 365 students and that of the sample is 40 students. The data were collected by using two kinds of instrument, that is the IQ score obtained from IQ documentation and speaking score obtained from speaking test. The r-table of this study at level of significance (P) 0.05 and degrees of freedom (df) at 40 was .264, and r-value was.508. Based on the computation above, the r-value is greater than r-table (r- value=.508>r-table=.264); therefore, Ho is rejected. The result of the research read as: ”There is a positive correlation between students’ IQ and their speaking ability in the third year of SMU Widya Dharma Turen-Malang 2002-2003”.
