Abstract

Students' speaking ability in SMP 28 Medan is still low from year to year when expressing English verbally they often stop in the middle of the conversation under 5 minutes, using vocabulary is very limited, having the lack of courage to start speaking English both to the teacher and classmates. In this study, the researchers applied the Running Dictation strategy used in teaching English and using body movements. Running Dictation is an activity that encourages teamwork, problem solving and memorization strategies. Running Dictation is expected to improve students' speaking skills in English. The test instruments are the performance, formative and interview tests. From the result itself, the students' speech duration increased to 8 minutes with more vocabulary mastery with better and more correct use and the ideas could be better conveyed, while from the interviews showed that the students are more motivated to talk. It is concluded that the Running Dictation strategy is able to improve the speaking ability of IX-B students of SMP 28 Medan in English.
