- Public Speaking, English for Specific Purposes, Needs Analysis
Among four macro skills of language, speaking is considered as the main measurement of learning language in both first and second language learning contexts. Every day the average person spends about 25 percent of time speaking and listening to other people. Nevertheless, based on the polling, the biggest fear of most people is that to speak in front of public. Regarding to this, aiming to enhance students’ speaking skill and develop their communication effectively, as well as to reduce anxiety level of speaking in front of lots of people, a private school in Jakarta, named Citra Kasih Senior High School, held a special class entitled Public Speaking Class. Thus, regarding to the specific purpose, this study tried to analyze the needs of Public Speaking learning and to evaluate the ongoing program. The needs analysis was conducted at the school of twenty students in grade twelve as the last grade of senior high school in order to get a more holistic summary of the three years learning period. The results of this questionnaire stipulated that the public speaking class still has redundancy on the taught materials in which some are not included as public speaking and that a gap between English and public speaking classes does exist. According to these findings, more established syllabus and methods are required, considering that this kind of particular school subject remains difficult to be found in other high schools, especially in Indonesia. Recommendations and pedagogical implications are suggested for the betterment of public speaking learning program for senior high school.
