Abstrak The objectives of this study are to describe the extent of student’s speaking ability that can be enhanced through the use of “High Town” Card Game as a learning medium and to describe the advantages and disadvantages of using “High Town” Card as a learning medium in teaching speaking to the seventh grade students of SMP Negeri 2 Sumbang in the academic year of 2010/2011. A three cycle classroom action research approach was adopted with four activities in each cycle, namely planning, acting, observing and reflecting. The population of the study was the seventh grade students of SMP Negeri 2 Sumbang in the academic year 2010/2011. The methods used in collecting the data were students’ test, students’ observation checklist, and questionnaire. The result of the students’ progress during the teaching learning process by using “High Town” Card was very good. The mean of students’ achievement increased from the first meeting to the last meeting. It could be seen from the average score, i.e points in pre-test and 3.18 points in post-test 3. The score improved by 1.92 points. It means that the use of “High Town” Card Game was effective in teaching speaking by considering the implementation of group work, free speaking activity and games. From the analysis of the use of “High Town” Card Game in developing the students’ speaking ability, some advantages are identified, i.e.: it makes speaking lesson more enjoyable, it teaches the students how to ask and give information to their friends, it can reduce the students’ nervousness to speak English, and the material of “High Town” Card is not only for introducing or describing someone. However, there were some disadvantages, namely the teacher needs more time and activity for creating the contents of the cards, and the activity demands teacher’s skill in controlling the class. “High Town” Card Game can be used by the teacher as an alternative medium in teaching speaking. Based on the result, the use of “High Town” Card Game could be said as one of the effective media in developing the students’ speaking ability.
