Abstract
Technology has profoundly changed how knowledge is transmitted and acquired, from exclusively classroom-based instruction to the hybrid of on-class interaction and online study. Given the prominence of blended learning in the field of language acquisition, the study aims to set the light on the students ‘attitude toward the implementation of Moodle-based LMS in teaching and learning speaking skills at Van Lang University. The study employed a quantitative research method, and a questionnaire was selected as the research instrument to determine the opinions of 24 English-majored students at Van Lang University. The finding showed that most participants found the additional LMS practices useful for developing speaking skills, mainly grammatical competence, including grammar, vocabulary, and pronunciation. The recommendations on the hallmarks of desirable feedback on students’ recordings may also help teachers design appropriate criteria for constructive criticism on students’ spoken performance. In essence, while face-to-face interaction still remains indispensable in improving speaking skills, it should be supplemented with Moodle-based LMS practices to better acquire speaking competence.
