Abstract

Speaking is the productive skill in developing the ability as second and foreign language to communicate clearly and efficiently. It is one of the important English language skill for students especially Senior and Vocational High School level. Nevertheless, several problems emerged in the teaching and learning of speaking skill. One of those problems was the students lacked vocabulary and motivation to learn English speaking, they got difficult to pronounce the words correctly, they felt anxious to speak English and so on. For that a reason, the researcher provided an effective solution to cope the problems encountered through Project-Based Learning (PjBL) method. This method has been popular in the curriculum 2013 which had been applied in SMKN 1 Kraksaan. PjBL is a teaching method which uses projects or activities as the core media in the teaching and learning process in which the students have full authority to gain knowledge in their own way. Meanwhile, the teacher acts as a facilitator toward the students’ learning process. As a result, this research was intended to know whether or not PjBL could give a significant effect on the students’ speaking achievement. This research employed quasi-experimental with none equivalent (Pre-Test and Post-Test) control group design. Moreover, this research was conducted at SMKN 1 Kraksaan, specifically at the eleventh grade. The researcher chose the students of two classes of the office administration namely APK 2 consisted of 34 students as the experimental group and 33 students of APK 1 as the control group. Furthermore, PBL was applied for APK 2 while APK 1 was applied using Grammar Translation Method (GTM). Based on the result of the Independent Sample T-test, the students’ speaking score showed that the obtained probability from the Experimental and Control groups were sig .00. It claimed that the sig .00 was less than .05 which was stated that there was meaningful evidence to accept the alternative hypothesis (Ha) and the null hypothesis (Ho) was rejected. In other words, it can be concluded that PjBL could contribute significant effect on improving the students’ speaking skill and it can be promoted by the teacher as a teaching method to English speaking skill.
