Oral communication is one of the most important aspects of information exchange between individuals. Considering teaching of foreign languages, it is evident that the development of speaking covers quite an extensive part of the foreign language learning process. The study presents the importance of speaking within mastering a foreign language on a theoretical basis and provides an insight into real teaching-learning environment. The practical part of the study introduces the implementation of three activities into the teaching process – monologues, games and problem solving activities. With the aim of finding possibilities for improving the quality of the teaching process in the terms of the development of speaking, action research is used as the tool for data collection and evaluation. The findings and the results of the study demonstrate how the three activities develop speaking and what benefits their use brings to the foreign language classes.
