  • Adrian Abreus González


Speaking skills development in English has being a focus of attention in the teaching of foreign languages for years. Despite its importance, many teachers still do not find the appropriate ways to introduce, provide practice, and assess the communicative functions in the teaching-learning process of English Language Teaching (ELT). The main purpose of this paper is to reflect upon the development of grammatical accuracy in speaking skills through the use of MyEnglishLab platform, taking as context the teaching learning process of English-as-a-Foreign-Language (EFL) at the Metropolitan Language School in Quito, Ecuador. It presents the main stages and criteria determined for the elaboration and assessment of a Didactic Framework for grammatical accuracy development in speaking skills. The main results of the research conducted state that there is a factual progress in the development of grammatical accuracy in students, regardless the fact that EFL teachers still have to correct the students´ works in relation to the development of speaking skills
