The objective of this study was to analyze whether Psychological Factors play a role in the speaking ability of tenth grade students of SMK N 1 Metro, Metro City. Psychology is the study of the nature of the soul and its process to the end. Therefore, psychology deals with the study of external behavior using objective observation methods for stimulation. In addition, there are some psychological factors that hinder students from speaking in English classes such asfear of making mistakes, shyness, anxiety, lack of confidence and lack of motivation. Those factors, like fear of making mistakes, were commonly caused by their fear of being laughed at by their friends. Some psychological factors such as shyness and anxiety are considered as the main causes of students' reluctance to speak.
