Moreover, this is a requirement for English Study Program students since they get Speaking courses for several times in the university academic year.

Accordingly, this study describes the students’ problems in Speaking English in depth understanding. The data are taken from interview with 17 students of the sixth semester in English Study Program of Universitas Muhammadiyah Sidoarjo.
