Media in teaching and learning languages keeps evolving for years. Parliamentary debate is a student-centered activity that integrates the four language skills and it promotes Communicative Language Teaching (CLT). Most parliamentary debate activity has been done in informal learning context, therefore the debaters only focused on their speaking fluency than the accuracy. Second, this study discusses teaching productive English skills in an integrated way by using the British Parliamentary debate as media in a formal learning context. The aim of the study is twofold. First, it examines how British Parliamentary debate can be implemented in a formal English language learning. Second, it investigates the improvement gained from the teaching program to the extent of the students’ debating ability, speaking accuracy, and writing skills. This study is an exploratory mixed-method that employed pre-experimental research using design one group pretest-posttest, questionnaire, and field notes. The results indicate that British Parliamentary debate could be implemented in formal English language learning and could improve students’ debate ability, speaking accuracy and writing skills. The study suggests the use of British Parliamentary debate for teaching integrated English skills in a formal learning context.
