After two first semesters experiencing several tradition tasks to practice the four English skills separetedly, many second-year students express a desire of having an integrated-skill task which allows them to improve different skills at the same time. In an attempt to not only satisfy the students' needs, but also effectively create a creative and engaging learning environment from the core of traditional assignments like Writing proposal and Making presentation, the the researcher decided to implement the format of "Shark Tank" – a popular American reality show in the specific context of one second-year Social English classroom. This action research will provide readers with useful information of steps to carry out the activity, how each skill is practiced during the activity as well as the activity's effectiveness (according to students' self-perception of improvement and level of satisfaction). The findings achieved from questionnaire, interview and observation data will benefit not only researchers interested in the topic but also teachers who are eager to create an innovative activity in their classrooms.
