Teaching English in non-English Department class needs more strategies and methods because of the unmotivated students. They think that English does not relate directly to their interest and competence. Not only motivation but also strategy in English Language Teaching should be given appropriately. The article reports my study on using traditional games in teaching speaking in Telecommunications Engineering Study Program containing 3 classes. I also taught speaking in Informatics Engineering containing 3 classes, but I did not use traditional games. I gave them questionnaire relating to their motivation and pre-test relating to students’ English mastery. The pre-test showed that the students had relatively the same motivation and English mastery. The traditional games used are Bethet Kingkong and Sledhur – Sledhur. To apply the games, the students should have mastered the rule of the games and the content of them. The findings revealed that the students of Telecommunications Engineering became motivated because the class was not boring. Besides, they could master the materials more quickly if compared with those of Informatics Engineering. It can be inferred that teaching speaking needs creative strategies in order that the students became motivated and entertained. Keywords: traditional games, teaching speaking, non-English Department class, Bethet Kingkong, Sledhur-Sledhur.
