Abstract: Oral presentations are present both in the educational and working contexts. However, many students do not consider themselves prepared to face this type of challenge, especially when giving certain information using a foreign language. Affective factors play an important role since low self-esteem, together with foreign language anxiety (FLA), might discourage the learner when trying to make progressions in the foreign language. Thus, it seems necessary to guide and help adolescent learners so that they develop optimal linguistic skills which help them reduce and control their FLA. The aim of this study is to analyse how the tool Flip can help students to improve their fluidity when speaking English as well as to improve their FLA. A speaking activity would be implemented in each proposed teaching unit over a five month period. The results gathered by means of initial and final questionnaires, summative evaluation and teacher observation might indicate a positive evolution in the acquisition of oral presentation abilities, and certain reduction of students’ FLA.
