Since communicative competence has become important nowadays, there is a good reason to increase the emphasis on oral skills in the classroom. The use of drama is one of the ways to promote oral skills. The aim of this study is to investigate in what ways does drama promotes oral skills which are able to function in communication. The participants for this study are English for Self-Expression (ESE) students. There are two methods being used to collect the data, namely; observation and semi-structured interviews. The findings from this study has concluded that the verbal forms of communication as well as non-verbal forms of communications are being used by the participants in drama performance to achieve certain functions in communication.
