Abstract

Today, the English language is widely used throughout the world both as a medium for written and oral communications. It is one of the official subjects in our country’s formal educational system. There are various ways and methods in acquiring English language: through natural development as a mother tongue, formal classroom lectures and selfdevelopment learning. However, specifically for the oral communication, the only way to acquire is to speak and continue to practice the language. Hence, this research study is to experiment a self-practice method that may provide an effective way for students to develop their English oral communication skill successfully. The self-practice method is done in a small group among close friends to enable students to learn more comfortably, and confidently. The results of the experiment showed the self-practice method may be effective if the program is assessed academically with lecturer-facilitator support.
