                                                   well as the geographical borders, the
                                                   communicative barriers though be
                                                   transparent they limit the chances of
                                                   exchange of meanings. The study and
                                                   acquisition of English as a Foreign

some information on personal matters or daily life

                                                     The proposed learning strategy is based
                                                     on reflection, awareness, analysis,
                                                     planning and development of a project

                                                     learning. Thus, working techniques are
                                                     developed based on:




Reflective analysis of cases or situations where there is looked that the student, through
readings, experiences or analyzing materials, learn English without focusing so much on
the form but the need to communicate.


                                                                                               6
Solving problems, understanding the approach and the development of a project to create a
newscast as a way “to live” the English Language. It is intended that the students make
decisions, plan actions for the development of a product with pertinent features to their
social reality through the need to understand and be understood in English

                                                     team must make a script about five
                                                     minutes through wiki space at

                                                     es.com/Screenwriting. The script must
                                                     be made taking into account fables or
                                                     tales of literature and to create news
                                                     from these stories. For example for the
                                                     sports section, starting of the fable:
                                                     “The hare and the tortoise”, you can
                                                     build on a report as: "Yesterday, took
                                                     place the race between the hare and the
                                                     tortoise, at the beginning the hare took
the advantage, the turtle started very slow”; however ...” The script must be a team-
building, so that each group member should make contributions through the wiki and
therefore being evidenced by them a collective and participatory preparation of the script,
besides a leader of each team must make a contribution or opinion about scripts of the other
teams. At the same time, each team must respond to comments or contributions that other
teams make.
