Believing in the importance of speaking skills as a main key to communicate, this paper examines the advantages of students' classroom presentations develop their speaking skills at Cihan University - Erbil. This study is a descriptive analytical pilot study involving 47 students from The Translation Department. It aims at investigating the outcomes of presentations. A 19-item questionnaire was given to students including three choices. In order to achieve the validity and reliability of the paper, interviews were conducted with four students. The results show that the presentations can develop students' different aspects of speaking skills.
