LACK OF MOTIVATION CAUSEEFFECT Routinary English classes Limited didactic teaching materials and laboratories in the development of English classes. Teachers are not well trained Traditional methodology Lack of Students’ motivation. Difficulty to develop the communicative competences. Reduce the students’ participation in different activities and become a passive learner. The students are not able to produce the language because they don’t have the opportunity to practice it.

Secondary problems Are the teachers motivated for developing the speaking skill in the learning process of English language Ss of the sixth course at P.M.G. high school ? How does the tradition method influence in the learning process of the English language Ss of sixth course? Do the teachers receive training to be dated in teaching methodologies of English language?
VARIABLES WORKING OUT Independent variable Speaking Active Techniques Dependent variable Learning Process.
OBJECTIVES GENERAL OBJECTIVE To apply a new method and technique to improve the speaking in the learning process of the English Language students of the sixth course at Padre Miguel Gamboa high School in Orellana town during the period 2007 – 2008. SPECIFIC OBJECTVES To motivate the teachers for improve the speaking skill of the learning process of the English Language students of the sixth course at P.M.G. high school in Orellana province To analyze the current methods and techniques that English teachers are using and affect the students’ speaking in the learning process of the English Language Ss of the sixth course at P.M.G.

Sometimes the teachers don’t apply the Evaluation RECOMMENDATION To prepare the lesson plans to improve the learning process. To generate some motivational techniques in class. To implement the high school with didactic materials to improve the working methodology. The teacher apply new techniques or strategies.
