In second language learning, requiring students to perform their speaking skill can be done through presentation assignments such as classroom presentation and poster presentation. This research reports a comparative case study between poster presentation and classroom presentation focuses on the interaction between the presenters and the audiences, in relationto constructivism theory. The data obtained in this research were videotaped and transcribed. Ethnographic microanalysis, selective verbatim transcript, conversational analysis, and Seating Chart Observation Record were used to analyze the data. The result showed that more interactions between the presenters and the audiences took place in classroom presentation rather than in poster presentation. Moreover,several issues also appeared during the interaction in presentation tasks, including the use of L1 in presentation activities and some corrections to the mistyped and mispronounced words.
