In addition, before the broadcast, students study material related to the topic provided by the lecturer so that they do not find it difficult to bring up the topic. The students also stated that they were very happy when their broadcasts were heard and received lectures delivered directly by the lecturers.</p> Emilia Ajeng Lestari Copyright (c) 2022 Enreal : English Research and Literacy Journal https://ojs.uniwara.ac.id/index.php/epj/article/view/286 Thu, 08 Sep 2022 00:00:00 +0000 The Students' Problems in Learning English Speaking at SMAN 1 Grati Pasuruan https://ojs.uniwara.ac.id/index.php/epj/article/view/293 <p>Speaking is the important skill in learning English besides the ability to write, listen, and speak.
