Diana Fauzia Sarý,Yunisrina Qismullah Yusuf,Nini Darniati,Dian Fajrina.

Abstract
English is treated as a foreign language in Indonesia. The language is introduced to students in
public schools from Grade 7. This qualitative study investigated English teachers’ efforts in using game
activities in teaching speaking and the problems faced in its implementation to EFL (English as a Foreign
Langauge) young learners, aged 12-13 years old, at a public middle school in Banda Aceh. Two English
teachers from two classes of Grade 7 students were audio-recorded and observed while teaching, and
further given a questionnaire. The findings found that both teachers used game activities in their classes.
Problems faced by the teachers in implementing these activities revolved around their preparation, class
participation and class management. The discussion is elaborated in the paper. The study suggests that wellplanned preparation, better class management and a focus more on the students’ participation are needed
to reduce difficulty in carrying out these activities in large class sizes

Key words: Game activities, teachers’ efforts, speaking, young EFL learners
