Abstract

Proficiency in speaking is considered the most crucial among the four language skills, demanding the full attention and concentration of students. This study aims to assess the perceptions of EFL undergraduate students at Universitas Syiah Kuala regarding the impact of English Camp on their speaking skills. Employing qualitative research methods, the research involved seven undergraduate students selected through purposive sampling. Interviews were utilized to gather data from participants who had attended Kampung Inggris Pare, an English Camp Program. The findings indicate that Kampung Inggris Pare contributes significantly to the enhancement of students' speaking skills. Notable improvements were observed in vocabulary mastery, pronunciation, speech fluency, grammar proficiency, and overall comprehension abilities, leading to increased self-confidence. These elements collaboratively play a role in assisting students in overcoming challenges they encounter during verbal communication. The research underscores the pivotal role of English camps in elevating speaking skills, encompassing the introduction of new vocabulary, enhanced pronunciation, increased fluency, heightened self-confidence, improved comprehension, and refined grammar. Consequently, these advancements reflect positively on students' academic performance and their communicative abilities in daily life.
