The integration of YouTube in learning speaking can be a valid resource for teaching lecturers to improve their lessons with various types of content that are interesting and useful and in accordance with the material being taught, and this integration is also expected to motivate students to learn. This study uses a qualitative research design by distributing questionnaires and interviews to find out the problems that occur in the learning process and what students want in improving their speaking skills. As a result, students still experience problems in speaking ability, but the biggest problem students’ face is related to fluency.

Easy, using YouTube videos to get used to listening to native speakers speak more. Learning will be more interesting if film media is added, such as identifying clips from a film.
