Abstract

Communication is indispensable for everyone; it is as essential as water for plants and seeds to grow. Nowadays, in the period of globalization the way people communicate has extremely changed all around the world. Although in our country English is not official language, we can easily find advertisements, articles and sometimes important news reported in English. It means that no matter where we are, foreign languages can literally knock atdoors. According to the Journalist Poonam Vaydia (March,2017),in her article Why a Journalist Should Know Good English explains that a Journalist should know English as a need to build better communication models and reach out the entire world because English has become an international language. In few words, English nowadays is a useful tool for everybody in order to communicate with others no matter our profession. However, in the case of journalists, English has become an indispensible tool not only because of their daily action with different people around the world but also because of their need to accesses and understand first source information from around the world in order to inform without unintentionally misunderstands of the information they want to spread. According to Professor Rodriguez de Carranza (2019), in the current year, at the Journalism Department in the University of El Salvador there are (60) students registered in Intensive English I. According to the registration system in the last five years, 32% of the students have failed English I one or two semesters before. As a result, it emerges a concern because of the importance that English has in their professional world in order to succeed. In order to address this problem, the Breakthrough Book will implement a digital resource in order to give students the opportunity to put into practice what they are learning inside the classroom. The main objective of this research is to analyze the impact of using an educational digital resource for learning English to students registered in Intensive English I this current semester
