Abstract

Every year, many students decide to major in English Teaching at the University of El Salvador. However, at the end of their studies, some of them do not reach the English proficiency level required suggested by the major. This study aims to identify the English level that fifth year students reach by the end of major, the previous English knowledge students have before starting their major and the activities they do in order to improve that level and their communicative competence. In order to collect the data needed to find out what the research team was looking for, it was necessary to distribute the chosen sample with an online survey and the TOEFL practice test through an educational platform called SCHOOLOGY. The main objective of the practice test was to measure the English level reached by fifthyear students and the survey to find out the activities they carry out to support their English learning, as well as their previous knowledge. The results showed that students did not reach the English level required since according to the curriculum of the English Major Teaching Option of the University of El Salvador this level should be Advanced Mid-level on the ACTFL scale that it is equivalent to level C1 on the CEFR scale, and most of them reached the B1 level, only a minimum percent is in the level B2. Due to the results obtained by the students, it is suggested an improvement on the mechanisms to evaluate students' English level before starting every semester in order to take a look at their learning process and support them to increase their development satisfactorily.
