Abstract

This paper presents the pupils’ readiness towards the implementation of web-based speaking skills resource as a way to improve ESL pupils’ speaking skills. The purpose of the study was to analyse the ESL pupils' readiness towards the implementation of web-based speaking skills resource in the sub-urban and rural settings. This study included 291 ESL pupils from sub-urban and rural schools and then utilised the web-based resource in the English lessons. The instrument was divided into six components which included (1) technology accessibility, (2) online skills and relationship, (3) motivation, (4) online discussion, (5) importance to success, and (6) problems in speaking skills to measure the ESL pupils’ readiness. The findings showed high level of readiness among the ESL pupils in the sub-urban and rural context. The ESL pupils are ready to use web-based speaking skills resource to improve their speaking proficiency, however, more guidance and references should be given to ease their use. The web-based resource would change the teacher-based instructions to student-based learning which would enhance their motivation to practise conversing in English.
