Nowadays, students in university level are highly encouraged to advance their speaking skill, since it has been used as the main part in communication in every important situation, organization and workplace. However, to make students speak the target language is not always easy and there can be several different reasons why this is the case. The current study investigated one possible reason, namely speaking anxiety and its influence on second language achievement. Concerning this problem, I conducted a research entitled “The Effect of Reflective Video to reduce Students` classroom Speaking Anxiety”. This research examined the causes of speech-production-related foreign-language anxiety among Indonesian students majoring in English Language Education. Furthermore, it also looks into whether and how reflective video along with self-assessment is able to help students to reduce their anxiety. The research was conducted on a group of Indonesian students taking a Public Speaking course at UIN Ar-Ranniry Banda Aceh. PRPSA was used to select the participants who have Speaking Anxiety. Then the selected participants were asked to record their speech and analyze themselves by using self-assessment form. The research results showed three causes of foreign language anxiety: feeling of helplessness, worries of terrible performance, and perfectionist. This anxiety affects their emotional and physical reaction through their speech. The results also demonstrated that reflective video and self-assessment helped students deal with classroom speaking anxiety because it helped them identify their strengths and weaknesses, conduct problem solving, and increase confidence.
