This research employed a quasi experimental design. The sample consisted of 20 students of PIA Monginsidi Makassar in academic year 2013/2014. There were 10 students in power speaking one as the experimental group and 10 students in power speaking one as the control group. The research data were collected by using three kinds of instrument: speaking test for the students’ speaking performance, and motivation scale and interview for the measurement of the students’ motivation. The data on the students’ speaking performance dealing with the three criteria in assessing speaking test namely accuracy, fluency and comprehensibility were analyzed by using descriptive and inferential statistics in terms of SPSS 17.00, and the data on the students’ motivation were analyzed by using Likert scale while data from students’ interviews were analyzed descriptively. The results of the research indicated that (1) the implementation of shadowing technique improved the students’ speaking performance in terms of accuracy, fluency and comprehensibility, and (2) the implementation of shadowing technique motivated the students to speak English. The improvement of the students’ speaking performance proved by the mean score of the students’ pre-test to post-test in the experimental group using shadowing technique was 58.32 to 79.42 and the mean score of the students’ pre-test to post-test in the control group using teacher-based technique was 58.88 to 64.99. It means that there was higher improvement in the experimental group than the control group if it was compared with the result score in pre-test and post-test both of the groups (79.42>64.99).
