Abstract

Background of this study is an effort to know which technique is suitable to use in teaching speaking. Teaching a foreign language is considered to be one of the most challenging teaching practices. In Indonesia, students are usually afraid of joining foreign language classes. They may feel unmotivated, discouraged easily.

Students who have learned English for several years have not been can communicate used English. So the researcher thought that there should be a solution to cope with that problem. The researcher tried to use describing picture as a method to improve students’ speaking skill especially in descriptive text.

Isriati Semarang in the 2010/2011 academic year.
