Key Terms: Perception, storytelling, speaking fluency.

As one of the necessary skills in English, speaking is applied in English Learning and Teaching (ELT) classes and extracurricular programs. To acquire speaking skills, students should master many aspects of speaking, such as pronunciation, structure, vocabulary, content, and fluency. One of the successful methods to increase students’ speaking fluency is storytelling practice. The storytelling method also empowers and motivates learners to improve their speaking skills, especially fluency.
One of the extracurricular programs that implement storytelling to improve students’ speaking fluency in SMPN 4 Ponorogo is English Study Club (ESC). Therefore, the purpose of this research is to investigate ESC students’ perception of storytelling practice to improve their speaking fluency in ESC. This research applied a qualitative approach and used a case study design. The respondents of the research were 15 students of ESC.
The procedure of data collection were an open questionnaire and in-depth interview. The 15 students were asked to answer the questionnaire. Meanwhile, the representative for the category of each length of membership was asked to give information in details from the questionnaire to an in-depth interview. The collected data were analyzed in descriptive qualitative methods. In this research, the data of students’ perceptions were described in detail, along with the individuals who were observed.
From the analyzed data, the researcher found that the majority of the ESC students had positive perceptions toward the storytelling practice to improve their speaking fluency. Although some students still have difficulties, they stated that their speaking fluency was improved than before. The students mentioned that they were helped by storytelling in improving their speaking fluency aspects. Moreover, it becomes important for ESC and English teachers to pay attention to students’ difficulties so the students will get maximum results.
