Abstract

The paper discusses issues related to assessing the speaking skill
in English as a foreign language. The paper also presents the process and the
results of assessing the speaking skill within the Croatian Ministry of Science,
Education and Sport research project - English in Croatia. Assessment results
show that grade 8 and grade 12 learners are communicatively competent when
speaking English. Although this is the main goal of teaching English as a foreign
language, the author stresses that in the process of teaching more attention should
be payed to the accuracy of learners’ speech.
