It means that students should be able to perform  oral communication in conveying and receiving messages  in the language in real and natural world. Consequently,  EFL teachers should create a classroom atmosphere  where students engage in real-life communication, authentic activities, and meaningful tasks that promote oral language production.This paper offers an interesting and interactive activity  as so called Running Dictation to activate students in speaking class. Theoritically, the activity is based on the one of the four strands in speaking class that is Language Focused Learning.The activity may lead students to greater independence and interdependence  as it requires each student to perform cooperatively and to  interact actively with other students in order to finish a task.
