The need for additional speaking activities outside of the classroom is critical in order to help students explore and gain new experiences as well as also providing ample opportunities for them to express themselves in English. However, there has not been many research which look in to the use of out class room activities in enhancing students’ speaking ability. Therefore, this study tries to shed light on the use of Out classroom experience in enhancing Indonesian EFL learners’ ability in speaking English. By conducting a case study approach, the research used triangulation data collection techniques consisting of classroom observation, interview, and speaking performance test. The study involved 40 undergraduate students from one of the public universities in Banten province as its subjects. The result showed that the use of Out classroom experience positively contributes to the development of students’ speaking development. Out classroom activities can facilitate the learners to access or even create language exposures by themselves. This study provided some implication about using Out classroom experiences for language teachers and educational practitioners as well as the educational policy makers. Further research in the same area is still required to determine, quantitatively, the effectiveness of the use of Out class room experiences in enhancing students’ speaking ability with a large number of participants.
