Knowledge of English language represents one of the essential requirements of today´s society. Besides other skills, it is considered as one of the most influential factors when applying for a job or maintaining a particular work position, which is often conditional to the advancement of a language level. Since the ability to communicate in English has become a necessity in human life, people take advantage of different opportunities to acquire it. The best and most natural way to learn this language is to study it in an English peaking country. Being exposed to a foreign language abroad without no interference of a mother tongue is undoubtedly the most beneficial and fastest way to improve language skills. However, not everyone is provided with such an opportunity. Therefore, the only chance most of people have is learning English in Secondary school, and taking in account the factor that the Nicaraguan Educational System does not include in its curriculum teaching English during the first years in school, that is preschool and primary school, as a result the transition to secondary school is affected by the inclusion of teaching a language in students` curriculum, this can be overwhelming and intimidating for students; therefore some teacher try to engage the students in the class by speaking and communicating in the mother tongue, in our case in Spanish, they consider student are more eager to learn the language if they use Spanish than using a language they cannot pronounce or understand. This research intends to analyze how this decision affects the learning process and if it is more effective than using English to motivate the students to produce the target language.
