This paper describes how viable watching short episodes from TV series is to achieve better listening comprehension in the classroom. To answer this question, the information needed was gathered by using observation guides and focus groups. Our results showed students have a prominent interest in watching TV series episodes in the classroom, and it was also revealed that watching videos motivates them to perform better in English class. Moreover, it was visible that the teacher was highly attracted to this strategy and was willing to use it to review vocabulary in class. Results also revealed that the research site has a noteworthy variety of resources, which is perfectly suitable for its implementation. However, at a later point, the evidence also exhibited that, even though audio-visual media is currently being used in the classrooms as a warm-up or vocabulary reinforcement activity, this kind of strategy is not oriented by the National Curriculum of Education of Nicaragua to improve students’ listening comprehension, which may cause teachers to choose other listening comprehension strategies instead of the one suggested herein.
