There are three major points discussed in this paper, first it discusses the current status of teaching speaking in Indonesia; second, it depicts the constraints that hinder in teaching English speaking in Indonesia related to native speaker model; and third it provides an explanation about teaching speaking for intercultural communication in Indonesia.
