The analysis of aptitude focuses on Bygate’s theory on operations of speaking skill. It was conducted in a public junior high school in Bandung, West Java by using a descriptive-qualitative study.It used observation, document analysis and interview as the research instruments. The findings show that the high achieving students obtained great scores and showed great speaking performance in English subject which are better than other students. They confirmed that their language ability is maintained by their motivation to learn speaking. However, the low achieving students did not have a great language aptitude. Considering the findings, it is suggested that the teacher should understand the students’ characteristics, particularly on students’ aptitude since it is the most related factor to the students’ achievements.
