Abstract

Previous studies showed that drama is quite effective in improving English language skills. Thus, it is considered as a method that has been widely practiced by teachers. The use of drama can be a motivation for learners in learning process. Project-based drama learning is a learning model designed for both language learning and language teaching. In this case, Project-based drama learning gives positive contribution to students’ language engagement and development. It provides natural context for learning English. In the case of language learning, it has been observed that many people fail to learn the language, even though they are successful in other learning experiences. It is known that some people have an anxiety reaction against learning the language. This study aimed at gaining depth information on students’ experiences in project-based drama learning classroom and their perspectives on their speaking anxiety. This study is qualitative. It involved two drama course classes in which 20 students were randomly selected as interviewees. The results revealed that most students admitted that their skills and confidence in speaking English improved. The project-based drama learning approach had given them valuable lessons particularly in building their characters and interpersonal skills (responsibility, team work, communication).
