Therefore, the study is aimed to find out: (1) the extent to which the influence of IPEM in making the students involve themselves in learning Speaking; and (2) the students’ interest in attending the Speaking class through IPEM. Students’ activities were observed, recorded, and noted during the teaching and learning process; and given questionnaires and interview in the last meeting in the class. The results show that: (1) IPEM enhances the student involvement in learning Speaking especially for most of those who get low involvement (33.3%) can achieve moderate involvement (56.7%); and (2) most of the students are interested in attending the Speaking class in which 89.6% of them are categorized high interested and the mean score of students’ questionnaire answer is 82 which is categorized high interested.
