This paper aimed to find out the degrees of linguistic supports, content-based and affective supports, skill supports, and diversity and flexibility of speaking materials in “Pathway to English” for the tenth-grade students of senior high school. This was a descriptive research type with content analysis. The English textbook “Pathway to English” was published by Erlangga. The theory of Dat Bao was used to analyze the data. Based on the analysis, the result of linguistic support shows 36.36 % which means “Poor”. The result of content-based and affective support shows 54.54 % which means “Sufficient”. The result of skill support shows 45.45 % which means “Poor”. Diversity and flexibility show the result 45.45 % which is “Poor”. It is concluded that the speaking materials are not fully supported inspiration, imagination, creativity, and cultural sensibilities to satisfy learners with moments of inspiration, imagination, creativity, and cultural sensibilities, lack of spoken language characteristics, communication function and strategies, and a variety of speaking materials. It implies that the materials should be elaborated to fulfill those criteria proposed by Bao.
