Speaking ability is often considered as the mastery indicator in language learning. On the other hand, teaching speaking is not an easy thing due to the complexity of the speaking itself. This article examined the lack of vocabularies and poor pronunciation, together with low motivation, less confidence, and students’ boredom, as the problems commonly faced by the non-English department students in a private University. Intending to improve their speaking performance, the study employed classroom action research in a speaking class held in the language center of the university. This action research used video as the main media, to be the main action given and some accompanying actions like listen and repeat, group work practice, and game. After two cycles of action, it was found that there was an improvement in the students’ speaking performance in form of the increase of vocabulary and the reduce of tendency to read text.
