Speaking skill is considered as a crucial skill for English foreign language learners. This skill needs to be developed not only at schools but also outside. Hence, English teachers should facilitate their students in improving this skill both inside and outside schools. Unfortunately, in Indonesia, most of the teachers encourage their students to develop other skills required for facing the national examination. As a result, the students have a very poor speaking performance. It was in line with the preliminary finding in a private vocational high school in East Lombok. Based on the finding, this research aimed at improving the students’ speaking performance by administering a method called flipped classroom that can support students for developing their speaking skill both inside and outside schools. This research used the action research adopted from Kemmis and McTaggart by involving nineteen students in the tenth grade of a private vocational high school in East Lombok, Indonesia. The procedures were planning, acting and observing, and reflecting done collaboratively with the English teacher. Then, the data were collected from observation and speaking tests and analyzed using thematic analysis and a Paired Sample T-test of SPSS. After analyzing the data, the result showed that there was a significant improvement in the students’ speaking performance. Thus, it can be concluded that the flipped classroom method significantly improves the students’ speaking performance.
