Speaking is one of the most important things in human‟s daily communication. In the learning of English, speaking is one of the important skills which has to be mastered because it is the dominant channel of communication. This research, focused on teaching speaking by using pictures in series as media. Pictures in series were used as media to raise the students‟ interest to the material. They were used because pictures in series contain the sequence of events or actions. Therefore, by using pictures in series, it was easier for students to understand the story given by understanding the outline in the form of sequence of pictures in series. This research was a Pre- experimental research. The purpose of this research was to know whether or not there was a significant effect of using Indonesian folklore pictures in series on the eleventh grade students' speaking achievement in story telling at SMAN Arjasa in the 2012/2013 Academic Year. The population of this research was the eleventh grade students at SMAN Arjasa in the 2012/2013 Academic Year. Two classes were taken as the experimental class and control class without random selection because the researcher used nonequivalent-groups posttest-only design. The classes were XI Social 1 (experimental group) and XI Science 5 (control group). The total numbers of the respondents were 70 students that consisted of 34 students of XI Social 1 as the experimental group that was taught by using Pictures in series, and 36 students XI Science 5 as the control group that was taught by lecturing method. vii The primary data of this research were collected from the students‟ scores of speaking achievement test. The supporting data were gained from interview and documentation. The students‟ speaking achievement was collected from the post test to make the comparison between the two groups after the treatment done. The results of the research were analyzed by using t-test formula. The result of the analysis indicated that the statistical value of t-test was 2.48, while the t-table with the significant level of 5% and the degree of freedom (Df) of 68 was 1.67. The value of ttest was higher than the value of t-table (2.48>1.67). Therefore, the null hypothesis (Ho) which was formulated: “There is no significant effect of using Indonesian folklore pictures in series on the eleventh grade students‟ speaking achievement test in story-telling at SMAN Arjasa in the 2012/2013 academic year” was rejected. On the other hand, the alternative hypothesis (Ha) which says: “there is a significant effect of using Indonesian folklore pictures in series on the eleventh grade students‟ speaking achievement test in story-telling at SMAN Arjasa in the 2012/2013 academic year” was accepted. Based on the result of this research, the English teacher is advised to apply Pictures in series, especially in teaching speaking to improve the students‟ speaking achievement. Further, the students are suggested to practice speaking by using pictures in series in order to increase their speaking skill.
