The design of this study is Classroom Action Research (CAR) which aims at knowing how high the students’ participation in speaking class and how real-world tasks can improve their participation in speaking class. It is found that my students in speaking class have less participation. Deals with the problem, I employ target / real-world task to improve the students’ participation in my speaking class. The subject of this study is 32 students of Intermediate Speaking class D. The tasks used are: having conversation with a lecturer, guesting native speaker, singing a song, and watching movie. I conducted the study for 2 cycles in which each cycle consists of planning, acting, observing, and reflecting. The data are observation, questionnaire, video recording and field note. The findings show that the students’ participation initially is low. After doing the real-world tasks, their participation is medium. The tasks are not only foster the students’ participation, but also their motivation.
