- Indonesia is included in the Expanding Circle Country section where English is rarely used as a foreign language. English is not used as a language of everyday communication but is used as one of the foreign languages studied at several universities in Indonesia. A phenomenon that often occurs among students when learning English is that they hesitate to practice their English in class, so it slows down their ability to communicate in English. Based on this phenomenon, the authors are interested in examining several things, including 1. Students' speaking problems in class. 2. The most effective activities in improving students' speaking ability. This research is descriptive by using a qualitative method. The data is collected by distributing several questionnaires to students and direct observation in the English class. The result of this research is 29% of participants did not want to practice English in front of the class because of fear of being a mistake and 29% of participants felt embarrassed if there is a mistake.
