Abstract

The ability in oral communication is one of the goals in ELT in university levels. However, lack of models and practices become considerable factors of why students sometimes find it so difficult. This study attempts to improve students’ oral performance in terms of fluency, pronunciation, and accuracy. It employed a Classroom Action Research conducted through two cycles. 20 first-year students of Elementary School Teacher Education of UNIMMA, Indonesia were assigned as participants. A shadowing technique supported by daily listening logs was carried out within 6-week practices. Oral test was taken to assess their oral performance. As attempt to find out their improvement in details, journals in form of daily recordings were investigated as well. Then data were analyzed using descriptive qualitative approach. Findings show there was an increase of mean scores from pre-cycle (62.7), cycle I (68.9), to cycle II (73.25). The activity logs contributed to this improvement as well. It was highlighted from the average scores of their daily activity logs. Hence, shadowing technique enhanced oral performance when assisted with listening logs. The results could be adapted by educators or parents when they attempt to improve their students speaking skills using shadowing technique.
