Abstract
The paper deals with the two series of instructional materials, New Headway and Cutting/New Cutting Edge, used at secondary schools which are deeply examined through a quantitative content analysis. The focus is placed on the representation of speaking tasks and also on the ratio between accuracy and fluency oriented speaking tasks as both are inevitable parts of building up a language base as well as language competences. ESL teachers might find the results of the research useful when choosing materials suitable for teaching speaking. All speaking tasks have been thoroughly counted and sorted into categories and subcategories on the basis of their objectives.

Key words
speaking, English language, language systems, language skills, accuracy, fluency, tasks, quantity
