Abstract

In every learning situation or environment, human psychology plays a significant role. English speaking is a language skill that is highly affected by human psychology. The aim of this study was to find out the psychological factor that affects most of the Indonesians‘ English speaking performance in order to propose some solutions to overcome the problem. This study used a descriptive qualitative research methodology to collect the data. The Indonesians who learnt English for their undergraduate program had been the population of this study. The researcher also purposefully selected some Applied Linguistics master program students in English education at YSU to act as research samples. So, after having analyzed the collected data from those participants by using some observations tools to find out the barriers students face in English speaking performance, it was clear that most of those students‘s desire is to speak English as well as they speak their first language. Unfortunately, most of them showed increased levels of anxieties. Although most of the students think that they have a good level of vocabulary or grammar, they also keep on feeling insecure while speaking. Most of the barriers were: being worried of making mistakes, feeling shy, and feeling frustrated while performing in English speaking. Finally, the researcher has proposed some solutions that are expected to be significant remedies to overcome the problems mentioned above. Keywords: English as Foreign Language in Indonesia, English Speaking difficulties, and Psychological Factor.
