The textbooks of Indonesian as a foreign language available at present are still limited and the one recommended by the MENDIKKBUD and widely used is Lentera Indonesia, first published by Pusat Bahasa, Departemen Pendidikan Nasional in 2004. Starting from the point that no textbook is suitable to meet all the needs of the learners in all contexts, this paper aims at identifying the gaps in each unit of the textbook and developing the communicative activities to achieve the fluency and accuracy in speaking. The data were taken from Lentera Indonesia, book I, Unit 1 to 10. From the analysis, it was found that there were no communicative activities to develop speaking skills, the sentence patterns were not controlled and the grammar exercises are not sufficient to achieve the accuracy and fluency. Based on the findings, it was recommended that the following communicative activities be developed to fill in the gaps in each unit: 1 ) identify one or two language functions and develop some communicative activities on a given context, 2) identify all the questions words related to one topic and develop the question-answer activities and 3) transformation drills to achieve the accuracy.
