This research lets EFLTeachers and students at Nicaraguan Secondary school to reflect about the way has been adressing the Teaching-Learning process and It helps to understand what are the main difficulties that affect the development of speaking skills and how to deal with them. Speaking is the productive oral skills. It consist of producing systematic verbal utterances to convey meaning.This skill like the other ones is more complicated that it seems at first and involves more than just pronouncing words.The Audio-Lingual method was the first approach used to teach speaking. Recently the Communicative Language Teaching or Communicative approach is the new proposal , however EFL Teachers believe that It is necessary to design some basic principles of teaching and apply them in their contexts. Nation wide there is a discussion about the official nicaraguan syllabus to teach English as a Foreign Language because of its grammatical focus does not allow the development of speaking skills,and the lack of Training English Teachers at Nicaraguan Secondary School. Added to these relevant points, the development of basic speaking skills in the teaching learning process is being affected by:  The traditional EFL class and short time to teach speaking.  There is lack of motivation.  There is lack on the domain of basic language functions.  There is lack on basic grammar and vocabulary knowledge.  The use of native language most of the time in EFL class. Another idifficulty is the testing speaking process.Speaking is probably the most difficult skills to test and one of the difficulty is separating them from listening skills.The lack on assessment because of large EFL classes is another of the great difficulties
