Abstract
Speaking is one of important language skills that EFL learners should study. Many learning techniques and strategies have been created from many works to improve learners speaking skill. These techniques can make students more active in class and improve their speaking skill. This situation also happens to STIBA’s students. Almost all of them passed English speaking class with grade B in average, but actually they are still having difficulties in speaking. Indonesia language as their mother tongue is very dominated in their academic activities. It means that there are hidden difficulties behind their good score in speaking class so that the researcher needed to conduct this study. There were fifty six STIBA’s students used as the participants to answer the questioners. The questioners were analyzed descriptively to find out the hidden difficulty. The result explained that they are still having difficulties in vocabulary, learning experience, and lack of preparation.
