However, the recent development of social-networking sites (SNSs) and mobile learning ( M-learning ) especially mobile-assisted language learning - LINE application, represents new opportunities for these learners to practice speaking English in a meaningful way. This study integrated LINE application into the first-semester of college students at private University in Jakarta where the researcher teaches, with the aim of determining its effects on the students’ speaking skills. From this study, the researcher has found that the learning motivation has increased significantly which is proven on the result of final speaking evidence in the form of recorded audio since they have more autonomy in learning. The participants have shown more intensed interaction among themselves inside and outside the class by communicating in English especially through speaking activity.
