Abstract

In this study we investigated the main speaking strategies used in English classes and how these affect students´ learning. The study also addresses the way grammar, vocabulary and pronunciation are enrolling in the development of oral ability. Also, to learn how the large classes or maybe overcrowded classrooms affect negatively the learning process strategies caused not only by disruptive behaviors but also limited students participation in class. The excessive use of the mother tongue or L1 and the lack of motivation create anxiety on students. The methodology to conduct the study consisted on a teacher´s interview, students´ survey questionnaire and classroom observations divided in three visits on the field. With respect to the analysis, the research method applied was quantitative. The results showed that the students feel demotivated due to lack of vocabulary and grammar structure and the environmental condition of the classroom not only the noise but also the ventilation in the classroom. However, these demonstrated to be quite effective in students learning. Satisfactorily, students expressed immediate oral feedback when practicing speaking activities and proved that didactic materials are essential to ensure effective communication. To conclude, the speaking strategies applied in English classes are not enough to promote speaking skills and language competence even though feedback is appropriated.
