Innovative Resources Based on ICTs and Authentic Materials to Improve EFL Students' Communicative Needs
González Otero, Rebeca
Research-publishing.net
Our global society and our current communication needs have put a strain on English as a Foreign Language (EFL) teaching, since common resources such as textbooks may fail to adapt to the needs and interests of our students. The present action research study aims at identifying EFL students' communicative needs and developing their oral skills through the use of authentic materials and Information and Communications Technologies (ICTs) in the classroom. For that purpose, a set of innovative resources was designed in order to decide whether these activities promote students' oral skills--namely oral production, pronunciation and fluency and listening comprehension--and whether they foster motivation among them.
