This study was about the students' speaking anxiety towards learning English for the fourth Semester Students of English Department at IAIN Kediri. This research described the symptoms of students’ speaking anxiety, the factors of students' speaking anxiety, and the solution to overcome that. The study was designed in a qualitative method by using a descriptive case study. The populations of this research were the fourth-semester students of the English Department in the Academic year 2019-2020 which consisted of eight classes. The sample of this research were 121 students taken by using convenience sampling. The data were collected using questionnaires adapted from the Modified Foreign Language Classroom Anxiety Scale (MFLCAS) by Songyut Akkakoson. The questionnaire distributed after the speaking class had conducted. The result was analyzed using descriptive analysis and then the researcher presented the data description in percentage, chart, and table. The result showed that the students of English Department of IAIN Kediri at the fourth semester experienced two models of anxiety, those are interference model and skill deficit model. The interference model is more dominant than the skill deficit model. Other findings result indicated that the factors that cause their speaking anxieties are less of vocabulary, lack of speaking practice, and did not find the words to express their feelings/thoughts. The writer also found that practice a lot, make a group discussion/speaking club, and use English in class as much as possible can overcome the students’ speaking anxiety towards learning English. Based on these findings, it can be concluded that a lot of students felt nervous and tense when practice in the speaking class so that they could not do their best. Anxiety could affect students’ speaking performance and achievements in the class negatively. The lecturers need to provide their students with some ways to cope with their anxiety and make the students more enjoy the learning process.
