English has long become an international language. Therefore, the ability to communicate in English becomes important. Not all students are able to talk English in public because they are afraid of making mistake, shy and under pressure. As a result, they cannot improve their speaking ability effectively. It requires attention to use other techniques to improve students’ speaking ability. This study concerns the effect of storytelling chain on students’ speaking ability. The purpose of this study is to find out whether there is any effect of using storytelling chain on the speaking achievement of eight graders. The instruments of the speaking test were pre-test and post-test. The population of this study was eight graders of private junior high school in Surabaya consisting of 38 students. This pre-experimental study was done by choosing one class between two classes which had lower speaking score. The class were given same speaking test for the pre-test and post-test. There were 10 speaking situations. The time allocation of both tests were 2x40 minutes. The students formed pairs. Each pair had to make a dialogue based on speaking situations that they had chosen before. They were given time for practicing before they did the test. The treatments were given three times.
