Abstract

The current study aims at analyzing the factors that interfere in the oral communication of a group of Foreign Language learners in third year of the English Major at UNAN-Managua. Among the possible factors that hinder students from developing their language competences there are the inappropriate use of communicative strategies in the classroom in terms of learning preferences and needs, the incorporation of didactic materials in traditional school- based ways during the practice of oral activities and the excessive use of talking time from instructors when teaching English deductively. In order to confirm or reject the previous hypotheses, there were adopted quantitative and qualitative approaches which consist in the application of a student`s survey, a teacher’s interview and two observation guides. The student`s survey was applied in order to describe the types of communication strategies that learners use when facing problems to convey their intended messages in class. On the other hand, the purpose of one of the observation guides and the teacher’s interview was to analyze the way the teacher uses didactic materials to enhance oral communication in the classroom. Finally, it was carried out a second observation whose aim was to estimate the amount of teacher and students talking time during the development of the stages in the language class.
