A. Background of the Study

Language is a means in which people use it to communicate with other

people. Language has important part in our life. In our life language has amazing

influence in which, using language can differentiate between people and


Language develops base on the development of period. We can see how

language changes between formerly and now. Like a story in the Leonard

Bloomfield’s book, about Jack and Jill story. One day Jill looked at an apple on

the tree. Jill wanted the apple. Later Jill made sound with her larynx, tongue and

lips. She did it by the purpose that Jill wanted Jack to crate an apple for her 2.

This story implies that the people before period also used language to

Leonard Bloomfield, Bahasa, (Jakarta : PT Gramedia Pustaka Utama, 1995), 1


communicate although their method was very simple. But, later the people

communication develops.

Now in the world there are many kinds of languages. For example are

English, Indonesian, Chinese, Javanese, Japan, etc. One of them is English as

international language. The students are directed to learn English both in oral

and written contexts. The capability of using English is very useful for the

students. The language capability can help the students improve themselves

intellectually, socially, and emotionally.

By realizing the importance of English, the government of Indonesian has

decided to place it as a compulsory subject to be taught at schools from

kindergarten school up to university level. Especially at junior high school and

senior high school, English is an obligatory lesson they must take.

Speaking is one of four skills in English. Speaking is the process of

building and sharing meaning through the use of verbal and non-verbal symbols,

in a variety of contexts3. Speaking is a crucial part of second language learning

and teaching. Despite it is importance, for many years, teaching has been

undervalued and English language teachers have continued to teach speaking

just as a repetition, drills or memorization of dialogues. However, today’s world

requires that the goal of teaching speaking should improve students

communicative skills, learn only in that way students can express themselves

and learn how to follow the social and cultural rules appropriate in each

communicative circumstance4.

Teaching is process of transfer knowledge for the students. Teaching

speaking is process of teaching speaking for the students. Teaching speaking

must have the students in the English teaching learning process. Teaching

speaking is very important part of second language learning. Since there are

some techniques to teaching to speaking, teachers must know the most effective

method used in teaching speaking. In teaching learning speaking process the

teachers must look for appropriate and effective methods for teaching speaking.

The example of techniques that can be used are discussions, role play, brain

storming, interviews, storytelling, drama, watching TV and etc. There is no a

single best method to teaching speaking. Every method has it’s strength ness and

weaknesses. For example storytelling is an interesting strategy in teaching

speaking, but the weakness is the senior high school students have limited

vocabulary. Besides, watching film is also very interesting activity. But the

students feel difficult to scrutinize, listen and understand vocabulary and

pronunciation in film. The causes the students are unusually to listen English

vocabulary spoken by native speakers.

In the teaching speaking process the teachers using drama. They feel that

it’s more effective method. Because this method can combine many method. To

teach speaking by using drama, teachers can combine two elements, they are

speaking and movement. However, practically in teaching speaking using drama,

teachers must combine many factors. Firstly, the students must know the story

will be show, the students must understand about grammar and application, the

students must often read novel in order that they know how to make good

dialogue, and the students must often watching film in order that they can

improve their pronunciation, diction and fluency skills. With use combine many

skills hope that the students can improve their speaking well.

Teaching speaking using drama very suitable when using in teaching

speaking at senior high school. May be this technique look foreign, but this

technique very interesting and challenged. Majority senior high school students

have active and expressive characteristic. So when the teachers do this

technique, the teaching learning process will be done fluently. Beside that the

students feel enjoy in teaching learning process. The feel challenge do learning

process when they get part in the process. These activities make the students

more active in the learning process and at the some time their learning more

meaningful and fun for them. Based on the background above, the researcher is

interested the introducing the teach of speaking by using drama.
