Nurul Iman Ahmad Bukhari and Suhaida Omar and Abas, Athirah and Bazilah Raihan Mat Shawal and Wan Suzana Aafanii Adeeba Wan Ibrahim and Ariezal Afzan Hasssan and Noor Hisham Md Nawi (2017) Exploring “Speak-O-Rama” as a public speaking module: A pilot study in an Islamic integrated primary school. International Journal of Applied Linguistics & English Literature, 6 (2). pp. 249-257. ISSN 2200-3592


This paper describes the pilot study in implementing a public speaking module for a primary school level. The module
development was structured according to ASSURE Model with the Communicative Language Teaching (CLT) as the
basis used in designing the module activities. One group of Year 4 students from an Islamic integrated school was
selected and the research method employed was the quasi-experimental research with pre and post-tests as well as
interviews with the English teachers on the students’ performance and self-confidence. Students were also interviewed
to identify their self confidence level before and after the implementation of the public speaking module. This research
project is hoped to increase students’ oral proficiency along with increasing self-confidence in public speaking at a
young age, and to propose the implementation of this module as reference in primary education.
