Abstract

Globalisation has increases the need for us to speak a common language. One of the most used international language is English language. More and more people are focusing on enhancing their English Language skills, especially communication skills as it will give them the necessary edge in education and employment. It is to be considered as crucial and essential to develop good communication skills to express opinions, feelings and thoughts. Students, especially those in tertiary institutions have realised the importance of mastering English language yet still unable to conquer the skills of communicating in English language. Hence, it is believed that the practice of of speaking routine intervention in the classroom as an innovation will be able to be one of the antidotes in combatting the issue of speaking anxiety among learners. A qualitative study is conducted involvingtwenty-two undergraduate students of English for Communication Course at a local public university. The findings have found out that the routine of 3-minutes pitching with the help of an application called FlipGrid in combination with face to face classroom is helpful in the run towards making learners to be good in communication skills. The findings have gathered that this innovation has helped learners to develop self-confidence and to combat speaking anxiety. Further recommendations and suggestions are discussed in this study.
