The success of developing communicative competence in teaching speaking is inseparable with the materials or tasks given to the students. The speaking teachers should really pay attention to tasks given that are more focused on oral communicative ones. The tendency of relying on student- centered communicative task is strongly expected to achieve the target of communicative competence development. Absolutely, the oral communicative tasks will activate the students’ interest to communicate their ideas in oral form naturally. They will enjoy their communication process created without much interference of teacher. Negotiation of meaning and management of interaction in their speaking activities will automatically occur well.
