One such application is the Cake application. This application is a learning application that deserves to be tested because it has several advantages. One of the advantages of using learning applications is that there is no limited space and time for learners to learn. Learning is no longer limited to lecture rooms or lecture time. learning can be anytime and anywhere. The purpose of this research is to find out whether the Cake application has an effect on students who use it, especially in the speaking field, more specifically the pronunciation. This research is a type of quantitative research with a quasi-experimental approach. The design used is "Pretest – Posttest Non-Equivalent Control Group Design". The groups used in this study amounted to 2 groups, namely the experimental group using online learning and the control group using online learning as well but added with the application of Cake. In this study, according to determine the experimental class and control class, random assignment was done, namely, the selection was made randomly to choose the class.
