Recently, thanks to the development of the Internet and other life conveniences, chances for learners to study language beyond the classroom have been expanded. Therefore, it is suggested that teachers link the world beyond the classroom (LBC) to their teaching and put their students’ perceptions and experiences at the core of the teaching process. In this study, the teacher-practitioner assigned an out-of-class task in which students had to self-video record their speaking outside the classroom, but the products were then assessed in class. By using semi-structured interviews and learner reflective journals, the research draws significant evaluative findings of self-video recorded speaking task (SRST) through learner perceptions of its effectiveness and successful learning strategies. Another important finding is learner perspectives about the role of the teacher in SRST by providing input and giving feedback. Based on the findings, the study offers implications for both research and practice on SRST application within and beyond the Vietnamese context.Copyright© 2021 The Authors.
