The purpose of learning a foreign language is communication, which can be through speaking or writing. That is to say, the mastery of a foreign language can be ensured by being able to speak that language. Thus, this paper investigates the impact of self-video recording on the development of students’ speaking skill in an engineering school. To examine the cause/ effect relationship between the two variables, a quasi-experimental study was conducted relying on a pre- and post-tests. Two intact groups were selected and assigned to control and experimental groups. The data were analysed using descriptive and inferential statistics including the mean, standard deviation, independent sample t-test, and effect size. The results of the experiment indicated that there is an effect of self-video recording on the development of students’ speaking skill and 6.43% of difference to the treatment. This implies that self-video recording has an effective role in enhancing students’ speaking skill. Therefore, it is recommended to use self-video recording as a teaching practice to improve students’ speaking skill. It is also recommended to use and test other ICT tools to help students to learn foreign languages in general and speaking in particular.
