Many remote learners yearly participate in online English courses at Ho Chi Minh City Open University to improve their English language skills for better English communication, job opportunity, and higher education. However, most of them seemed to be problematic in natural and fluent speaking skills at an acceptable level of a non-native speaker due to a lack of environments for English speaking practice when having non-physical and irregular contact with their peers and instructor. To help the remote learners have more environment to enhance their English- speaking skills, project-based learning (PBL) method was applied. Hence, this study aims to explore not only the effectiveness of PBL applied in learning English speaking skills online but also learners’ perception towards that PBL method. To do that, a mixed research method was used. Fifty remote learners were asked to respond to a survey questionnaire for quantitative data collection, while 6 of them were interviewed for qualitative research. The finding shows that the remote learners had some definite difficulties in their online learning process, and PBL enabled remote them to improve their speaking skills because PBL helped create more learning environments for learners practicing their speaking skills autonomously, which satisfies learners satisfied with the PBL method applied.
