... in which they will find a list of phrases that they could use to express their opinion during the lesson, especially after documentaries or tales.

: at Manuel Montt school

: students from first grade of high school

because there is a lack in the English knowledge especially in this level.

Research questions

- Many students finish primary education and they decide to attend different schools.

- The project will be fulfilled at Manuel Montt School in Villa Alemana.

- It will be 2 hours per week (different days).

- Work in mixed-ability classes with students below level A1.

•- Students will watch documentaries applying three skills: reading, listening and then speaking..

1° To present the project to the school.
- Consists in 2 hours per week after finishing regular classes.

2° One week after to start the regular classes
- Diagnostic test, KET (Key English Test) from CEFR
(Common European Framework of Reference)

3° Identify the level of each student, according to the results of the test.

4° Select only students Below A1 level, where the 50% of them are going to learn in workshops experimental groups and at the end of the semester we are going to take the exam again to compare the results with the ones of the control group. If the new methodology was a complete success, it might be able to be applied in the future.

Justification of the significance of the project
Theoretical framework:

10 minutes of relaxation:
"Krashen Affective-filter hypothesis: This suggests that when learners are bored, angry, frustrated, nervous, unmotivated or stressed, they may be unsuccessful at learning a second language. This has very practical implications for language teachers: low their affective filter."

2- Work with the 25% of the
students (experimental group)

3- Students’ proficiency will be
tested at the beginning and at
the end of the semester.

4- Students will attend 2 sessions
a week at the computer lab in
order to watch documentaries and tales in English.

5- Document with phrases to use.

* Allow a significant and compressible learning to students from
first year of high school with a low level of the English language.

* Able to acquire a different approach in their learning process.

* Protagonists of their own educational process.

* Use a computer, where they will watch, listen and read documentaries, tales and others videos through the language of English.

* Students will not only learn the pronunciation and meaning of each video but also they will learn a variety of cultures from other countries, without being abroad.
