Abstract

This experimental research aims to find out if Simulation Board Game is more
effective than Conventional Method to improve students’ speaking skill.
Around sixty-six students of the tenth grades of SMA Negeri 2 Wonosobo, in
academic year 2015/2016 participating in this research were categorized into
two groups named experimental and control group. To make it easier to
understand, the result was presented in the form of statistical data. The post-test
score of both groups is quite far which is 75.12 for the experimental and 60.12
for the control group. In addition, the sig (2-tailed) of the T-test which is 0.000
explains that there is a significant difference between the students who are
taught by using Board Game and those who are taught by using Conventional
method. Furthermore, the N-gain score shows that the effectiveness of speaking
skill with Board Game is at the medium level, while the effectiveness of
speaking skill with Conventional method is at the low level. Based on the data
