DIAZ LARENAS, Claudio H.  and  GONZALEZ SANHUEZA, Felipe. Videos as a development tool of oral fluency in English. Acad. (Asunción) [online]. 2021, vol.8, n.1, pp.55-66. ISSN 2414-8938.

For Chilean students, developing the ability of speaking in English is a big challenge, and at the same time, it affects their perception of the level of ability they have got in the language. This action research involved a group of students from a Chilean public school, into a didactic sequence based on developing English oral fluency through the creation of situational videos in which learners could watch themselves speaking English and could analyse the perceptions of their own abilities. To do this, learners answered a scale of perceptions of English oral fluency, at the beginning of the didactic sequence, in the middle and end of it. Using descriptive statistics, this study showed that the making of videos had a positive effect on students’ perceptions, especially on the attitudinal area related to English.
