    Abstract

    The tenth grade students in vocational schools are expected to be able to speak the simple utterances in English. However, in reality, only a few students in vocational school could do that. Based on that condition, this study is aimed knowing how Three Steps Interview Technique improve the students’ speaking skill. The subject of this study was 36 students of class X AK.1 in SMK N 9 Semarang. The research method used was an action research. This study conducted five meetings for two cycles. The first cycle was conducted in two meetings and the second cyle was conducted in one meeting. One meeting was for pre-test and the last meeting was for post-test. The intruments used in this study were speaking tests, observation check list, an observation list, and a questionnaire. The result of the study showed that the students’ responses in learning speaking was good. They enjoyed the activities using Three Steps Interview Technique in class by having a discussion, sharing, and cooperating well. The students’ improvement was proved by their speaking test results which increased from test to test. In pretest, all of students final scores were under 50. In the cycle one test, no one of them got final score less than 50. From the cycle two test, most of the students got final score more than 70. Then, the data of post-test showed that all of the students got score more than 70. Based on the result above, Three Steps Interview Technique can be used as an alternative teaching technique to improve students’ speaking skill. I suggest the teachers to use a topic variation to make the learning process more enjoyable. Then, for the next researchers, they could use this study as a reference to do deeper research about teaching method. Finally, for the English learners, they should keep practicing speaking English every day to make their speaking ability better.
