This research had as its ultimate objective to analyze the effects of the use of audiovisual materials in the development of oral expression in 55 ninth grader of basic education at the Unidad Educativa “Vicente Anda Aguirre”, during the first part of the first term of 2018-2019 academic year. To achieve the objective, two evaluations were applied in two moments (pre-test and post-test). The assessments were developed based on Speaking skills through the Cambridge Preliminary English Text (PET) exam. Additionally, students and teachers were surveyed in order to obtain data related to the practice in the classroom. A booklet was designed which contained ten lesson plans. They were applied during the intervention period. The lessons focused on the use of audiovisual materials such as computer and internet, online tools, flipcharts, television and cartoons in combination with oral expression strategies such as: planning, execution, and evaluation. The data obtained was evaluated through the Cronbach Alpha test that allowed verifying the reliability of the results. After finishing the intervention with the study or experimental group, the post-test was applied, which allowed obtaining the results that were analyzed and contrasted with those obtained in the pre-test, using the T-Student test. The results obtained with the experimental group proved that the students improved their oral expression and experienced greater interest and motivation, through the use of audiovisual materials. Hence, it is recommended that teachers include in their didactic planning the use of audiovisual materials to improve students’ performance.
