    Abstract

    This study aimed at knowing how the lexical bundles can improve students’ transactional speaking skill. To achieve the objective, an action research was designed and carried out through planning, acting, observing, and reflecting. The subject of this research was 36 students of class VIII G of SMP N1 Brebes. The writer used speaking tests, an observation checklist, and questionnaires for collecting the data. The result of the study, after being analyzed and described qualitatively, showed a significant improvement of the students’ achievement. The students’ speaking skill improved in all speaking aspects: fluency, pronunciation, grammar, and vocabulary. The result of the first cycle (treatment using lexical bundles and single slot substitution) had shown that there were improvements of students’ vocabulary and grammar while the result of the second cycle (treatment using lexical bundles and repetition drill) had shown improvements on students’ fluency and pronunciation. The result of the observation sheet showed that after learning transactional speaking using lexical bundles, the students became more cooperative, active, and the class become more joyful. The analysis of the questionnaire showed that the students gave positive responses towards the use of lexical bundles as media in their learning. Based on the results of the research, it can be concluded that the use of lexical bundles as learning medium contributes to the improvement of students’ transactional speaking. It is suggested that this medium can be used to improve students’ speaking skill.
