Abstract: The main objective of this study is to describe the classroom practice of teaching speaking skills in government high schools, especially in grade nine. The researcher focused mainly on the teachers’ role, students’ role, the techniques and procedures used by the teachers, the resources used to teach speaking skills and the way students sit in the classroom. To gather information on the above main objectives various instruments were used. These are: classroom observation, students’ and teachers’ interview, students’ questionnaire, tape and video recordings. The data were categorized and descriptively analyzed. The findings depicted that inappropriate speaking techniques and procedures were used in the mentioned grade level. Teachers were observed using the traditional way of teaching speaking which is dominated by reading model dialogues aloud. There has been little or no time given for the modern speaking skills teaching techniques such as group and pair discussions, oral report, drama, panel discussions and interviews. The consequences of inappropriate speaking practices used has resulted in the weak performance of the students in of speaking. To that end, this research paper provides recommendations that could bring about a change in the practice of teaching and learning speaking in the grade level studied so that current techniques and procedures of teaching speaking could be employed.
