    Resumen

    A research study conducted by the British Council in 2015 suggested that in the last two decades, more and more English learners in Colombia have constantly searched for opportunities to practice and master the English language. This study found that ¿¿ the majority of Colombians lack contact with the language in their daily lives¿ (p. 56). The British Council study also concluded that ¿real English acquisition is currently limited to higher socio-economic strata, where students often have access to bilingual or private education¿(p. 58). The findings in the above mentioned study resembles the current situation in a private University in Neiva where this study took place. In the students¿ particular context there were limited opportunities to interact in English outside the classroom. Thus, to address this problem, this research project explores the impact that Skype has on oral production. Six pedagogical interventions were designed to identify the aspects of oral production that are affected by the implementation of Skype beyond the classroom. During the first semester of the year 2015, some students approached one of the authors of the study who was their English teacher, expressing their desire to have more opportunities to practice the language. The time for practice in the classroom was too limited and it was difficult for students to meet the teacher out of the classroom in the university. Listening to the students and taking advantage of their readiness was beneficial to plan alternatives for extra language practice. Therefore, Skype was considered to be suitable for the study because it offers an alternative way to meet people to practice English as a foreign language. So, the main goal of this research study was to identify the aspects of oral production that are affected by the implementation of Skype beyond the classroom. In the first chapter of the present document, there is a detailed depiction of the problem that was identified in the particular context. This description is based on close observations, community visits, informal talks and likert scales that took place at the beginning of this research project and were developed in the foreign language classroom to unveil the causes of the problem. On top of this, some recent studies related to using Skype in the realm of language teaching are presented to portray how these previous works helped us to shape the initial research proposal. Also, a description of the context where this study took place is made, as well as the possible contributions the authors intend to make in the local academic and social environment. In the second chapter, there is a compilation of theoretical constructs related to Computer Mediated Communication (CMC), social networking, cooperative learning, video conferencing and oral production. In the next chapter, the nature of this study is depicted to establish the type of research and study supported by different authors. Besides, a thorough description of the population is made and the criteria to select the population from the private university are described too. A portrayal of the instruments and how they were used to collect the data is presented in the present study. In addition to this, a detailed description of the instructional design is made. In chapter four, the data analysis is presented, as well as the research categories and the findings related and supported by essential constructs in the theoretical framework. Finally, some conclusions and pedagogical implications are portrayed in the light of answering our research question and objectives in the fifth chapter.
