Abstract: Among four macro skills namely listening, speaking, reading, and writing, learners have favored speaking because it is used frequently in daily life. However, students still have been faced with difficulties in learning speaking skills. Therefore, the study was conducted for the purpose of offering group-work techniques, namely group discussion as a key to improve speaking skills of the first-year students at Hanoi University of Industry. This is a report on the study of using group-work in order to improve speaking skills of the first-year students at Hanoi University of Industry. The writer used action research as the method in carrying out the research. It was done in four steps, namely planning, acting, observing, and reflecting. The data were collected from the students’ speaking scores in the pre-test and post-test, classroom observation, and semi-structured interviews. The research was conducted in two cycles. Each cycle consisted of three meetings. The study showed the improvements of the students’ scoring and performance. In the pre-test, the mean score was 5.6 but in the post-test, their mean score increased to 6.1. The improvement of students’ speaking skill was recorded with the mean score of 6.9.
