GAMAYO SERRANO, José Manuel. Developing oral English through distance learning and new technologies. Gac Méd Espirit [online]. 2023, vol.25, n.1, 2446.  Epub 01-Abr-2023. ISSN 1608-8921.


English language teaching is a priority in the comprehensive preparation of medical professionals. In the current circumstances, distance education is a way to continue the teaching-learning process in higher medical education.


To design for its implementation a system of learning tasks aimed at developing oral expression skills in English through distance education in 2.nd year medical students.


It was adopted the materialist dialectical method as the general methodological conception of the research, and other methods, from the theoretical level: analysis and synthesis, induction-deduction, systemic-structural-functional, historical-logical and modeling; empirical: documentary analysis, survey, class observation and statistical procedures.


The main difficulties were related to the limitations in the treatment of the oral expression in the English language, insufficient preparation of the students on the analyzed topic and their limited ability to develop oral expression in this language, so a system of learning tasks was developed to solve these aspects.


The experts considered the system adequate in terms of its structure and feasibility of implementation, contributing effectively to the consolidation of cultural training and at the motivational level.
