Abstract
This study was conducted based on the teacher's need for learning media to train students' speaking skills. Based on a survey conducted in a public elementary school in Bantul area, Yogyakarta, speaking skills become the standard of graduation that must be mastered by students and are very important for further study. Unfortunately, many students still think that public speaking is frightening. The purpose of this paper is to see the effectiveness of Pelajar Go!, a board game-based learning medium, on students' speaking skills, with pre-test and post-test control group design and experimental group selection based on random sampling, Kolmogrov-Smirnov test, Levene’s test, and analysis of variance (t-test). The results show that learning using Pelajar Go! is more effective to improve students' speaking skills than using conventional media. There are significant differences in terms of task achievement and communication skills (0.006), speech clarity and naturalness (0.015), grammar (0.006), and vocabulary (0.003). This medium works well to help students participating in a discussion, motivate students to learn because of the interesting forms and content, encourage students to convey their ideas, and provide fun and exciting ways to practice their skills
