Abstract

Through the years, the concept “EFL” has gained a lot of importance around the world since English has become the business of official language. The number of English learners is increasing constantly and the need of new methodologies and activities as well. But, one of the most challenging factors teachers are dealing with nowadays is the participation of students in the speaking activities. The participation in English classes seems to be lower as they should be. Some factors have been considered to be the cause of the low participation. However, there are some aspects to take into account, such as: students’ desire, and teachers’ motivation and teachers’ methodology that would undoubtedly help to increase the participation. These three main factors appear to be the key to generate possible solutions to the phenomenon of the low students ‘participation. This research pretends to find some of the reasons why this phenomenon occurs in the Advanced English I classes of the Foreign Language Department. It also pretends to provide some insights to help the teachers identify which activities that are being used the most, identify the speaking activities that students prefer, dislike or the ones they would like to be implemented in the class.
