In improving the speaking ability of santri mukim, the Syafi'i Akrom Islamic Boarding School, especially SMP Sains Cahaya Al-Qur’an, developed an innovative implementation of Vocabulary Learning Time (VLT) using the classical method in additional/specialized class packages. This research is about the application of Vocabulary Learning Time (VLT) using the Classical Method which aims to improve the ability to speak English at the Santri Mukim of the Syafi'i Akrom Islamic Boarding School. The researcher uses Qualitative Classroom Action Research which aims to obtain complete data and explain comprehensively. Data collection techniques used are observation, questionnaires, and interviews. Researchers analyzed the data using John Tukey's analysis model on the JOPGlass by Harys (2020) website which includes collecting data, cleaning data, and organizing data. The results of this study explained that increasing vocabulary requires a habit of one day, one vocabulary and immediately practicing it in daily life. A supportive environment such as an Islamic boarding school environment is very effective in improving conversation in using English. With the concept of additional classes / specializations for santri, schools together with Islamic boarding schools are assisted by classical methods to create a global environment, because basically "Language is the crown of Islamic Boarding Schools".
