Project-based Learning (PBL) has become the central part in ESP practice in higher education. The present study tried to confirm the questions whether the students' foreign language (L2) oral performance in English for Business (EFB) Class is affected significantly after PBL is tailored. The study conducted for a semester used an experimental design with the total of 60 students as participants. Before the learning process began, the students were assigned randomly to experimental class (learning EFB through PBL) and control class (learning EFB through Presentation, Practice, Production). In both classes, business presentation was employed as oral test in order to reveal the difference of the L2 spoken performance between experimental class and control class. The finding in this study pointed out that the students who learn EFB through PBL outperformed the students who learned EFB through PPP. Since the finding of this study confirms numerous previous studies done in identical area, it is recommended that practitioners apply PBL as an alternative way to teach ESP class particularly at undergraduate level.
