The significant care and the globalization of English have been caused broad demand for good English-speaking skills in various realms. The evidence manifested that some features of speaking abilities are amenable to instruction in the second or foreign language classroom (Derakhshan, Tahery, & Mirarab, 2015). In spite of the verified evidence in speaking, there are still debates over English as a Foreign Language (EFL) learners’ speaking ability and approaches. Therefore, the present paper aimed to provide readers with interesting materials, empowering activities such as imitation, responsive, intensive extensive performance, transactional dialogue, and interpersonal dialogue to improve their speaking abilities. In addition, the EFL learners can boost their speaking ability by utilizing various instruments such as, role play, videos, flash cards, and graphs. Furthermore, this paper takes into account the significant components and keys to improve speaking competence accurately and fluently. To this goal, language teachers have vital roles in creating appropriate environment in the classroom that encourages both children and adults to firstly take part in classroom conversations and then, facilitate opportunities to keep doing it outside of the classroom. Thus, it is beneficial for both children and adults. Finally, this paper reviews some empirical studies to clarify the effectiveness of various methods and approaches to promote the speaking skill accurately and fluently.
