This reseacrh aims at investigating how basic intensive English students use technology outside the classroom in their English learning procces. For purposes of the study, the non-experimental approach was used. It means that the researchers cannot control,manipulate or alter the predictor variable or subjects, but instead, relies on interpretation, observation or interactions to come to a conclusion. This methodology was adopted to describe and analyze the information collected via surveys.The research was focused on the students registered in Basic Intensive English of the B.A. in Modern Languages and the B.A. in English Teaching from the Foreign Language Department, in seven different groups, approximately 180 students. For our purposes the sample was composed of fifty-six students which represented 31% of the population. Participants were surveyed through a 27 closed ended and open-ended questions. The Major conclusion of this research was that after conducting a careful and detailed analysis of the data reported, the impact that technology has over the process of learning English as a Foreign Language for Basic Intensive students is vital to promote their autonomy. However, students in the Foreign Languages Department have satisfactory results but theycould be even better, since they have most of the resources that a languages student can take into advantage to be more profitable in his/her learning.
