This study focuses on the implementation of contextual teaching and learning strategies to the seventh grade students of
SMP Negeri 04 Lamongan. The purposes of this study are; (1) to describe the implementation of contexual teaching and learning
strategies at the seventh grade students in SMP Negeri 04 Lamongan, (2) to describe students responses to the implementation of
contextual teaching and learning strategies at the seventh grade students in SMP Negeri 04 Lamongan.
In this study, the descriptive qualitative research design was used because the researcher wanted to investigate some
phenomenon in its natural setting. The subject of this study was the teacher who taught first grade students at SMP Negeri 04
Lamongan. There were two techniques to collect the data. They were observation and interview which observation and interview
guide as the instruments.
The result showed that the teacher under the study implemented CTL in her teaching, whole CTL components were
implemented successfully enough. It could be concluded that contextual teaching and learning is implemented to be used as
strategy in teaching speaking. However, she did not apply CTL characteristics evenly. There was an activity that was not covered
by the teacher in characteristics of CTL. Reaching High Standard was seldom used due the condition of class and the limited
vocabularies for the students, so the teacher skipped them. It was concluded that the implementation of CTL was not optimal
because there was CTL characteristic had ignored and not maximal. Besides, the students good response toward the
implementation of CTL strategies may indicate the development of students' confidence and motivation in learning speaking. In
addition, most of the students gave positive response towards the use of CTL in teaching speaking.

teacher should use it as one learning method in order to be
able to create a good atmosphere in the classroom and make
the classroom more joyful, relaxing, and comfortable.
The teacher should have more motivation than the students

teachers to teaching speaking.
