Today's students are digital native generations that heavily rely on the use of technology and social media in their personal, interpersonal and social interaction. Their way of living indeed shapes the way they interact, learn and perform in English learning class. In accordance with that, multiliteracy which is recognized by the use of technology and social media is seen as a ‘bridge' to fill the gap between teachers and the digital native students. The objective of the present research, therefore, is to investigate the implementation of multiliteracy in teaching speaking at SMPN 2 Batu.
