In this article entitled “Uso de la radio como estrategia interactiva para desarrollar la competencia comunicativa oral del idioma inglés, (speaking)” are outlined some experiences resulting from a research project carried out at Pontificia Universidad Católica del Ecuador Sede Ibarra, during the academic term 2016–2017, with students of eighth and fifth level of the Languages and Linguistic School. This research talks about the importance of the radio for the learners’ English speaking skill strengthening. The radio has been used as an object of study, but has not been used as a didactic strategy so it is very innovative for the educational field to access to new teaching methodologies. The quantitative method was used; fieldwork was conducted in weekly sessions. The methodology used was mixed, since data were evaluated and descriptive. Results were gathered simultaneously to the significant learning linked to innovative and interesting methodological strategies for students like the radio.
