Abstract: With the world changing to a village, the use of English language, and most importantly, the English speaking competence is becoming more important. Looking at its importance, students of every field are required to have high oral proficiency, most importantly, the students of the English departments. However, we find that undergraduate students show less desire to speaking English during the speaking classes. When it comes to oral communication, they still cannot communicate effectively and confidently. There might be many factors involved that stops them from communicating. This paper aims to find the factors that hinder students from speaking and producing oral communication. The paper will help instructors understand the weaknesses of their students in speaking classes and come up with possible solutions to those problems.
