The steps were modified into seven steps including conducting needs analysis, designing the course grid, developing the materials, getting expert judgment, revising the materials, trying out the materials, and revising and writing the final draft of the materials. The subjects of this research were grade VII students of SMP Unggulan ‘Aisyiyah Bantul. The data collection techniques of this research were survey and interview. The instruments of data collection were questionnaires and interview guidelines. The data were analyzed quantitatively and qualitatively. The product of this study is a book containing students’ English speaking materials. In terms of target needs, the students are expected to accommodate their left- and right-brain to obtain their knowledge, ability, and skills to communicate in English. The grade VII students preferred discussion and conversation activities. With regard to the learning needs, they preferred audio listening, video, and pictures as the input. Most of them preferred the topics related to entertainment, hobbies, and environment. The book contains six units of which each unit consists of 17 to 19 activities. The appropriateness of the learning materials is in four aspects: the appropriateness of the contents, activities, language, and graphics/layout. Based on the expert evaluation, the developed materials were in a “very good” category with the average score 3.25, from the range of 3.25 ≤ x ≤ 4.0. Based on the students’ evaluation, the developed materials were also in “very good” category with the scores ranging from 3.25 ≤ x ≤ 4.0. Therefore, it can be concluded that the materials are appropriate to be used and implemented.
