The biggest challenge in mastering EFL is to use the language itself in speaking. Distractions like nervousness, low self-confidence, high anxiety, and low proficiency in English used to hinder the quality of students speaking performances. Thus, using effective media like infographics could help students to cover up those distractions and have better speaking performances. This study was conducted to discover the effect of infographics implementation on students’ speaking skills in the Indonesian EFL context. This research was carried out at Ganesha University of Education, especially in English Language Education Program and sixty students were involved as the participants. This research used an embedded mixed-method design in which the qualitative was collected through observation and questionnaire. Meanwhile, quantitative data were collected through a speaking performance test. The findings of the qualitative analysis revealed that the lecturer employed infographics with different roles in pre-activity, while-activity, and post-activity during the speaking classes. Then, the result of students' responses showed that 97% of students responded positively to the use of infographics as the learning media and stated that the use of infographics as learning media improves students' speaking skills. Meanwhile, quantitative data analysis revealed that students in the experimental group performed better in speaking than students in the control group.
