Abstract: Different factors influence the learning of a foreign language (Krashen, 1981). Anxiety towards the second language stands out as one of the main factors impacting performance (Liu, 2006) and the learning process of individuals (Ortega, 2021), especially when they have to use the language in front of the class (Horwitz et al., 1986). This didactic proposal aims at investigating to what extent Flip allows seventh-grade students in the Open Education Program (PEA-UCR) to practice oral expression while simultaneously reducing anxiety related to the foreign language. The proposal implements a four-week didactic unit, during which students create videos related to the study topic using Flip. Data obtained through various instruments administered at the beginning and end of the didactic intervention, along with the evaluation model associated with the proposal, indicate that students 1) recognize the importance of practicing oral expression. However, they also reveal that 2) they experience anxiety in the use of the foreign language, affecting their performance. Nevertheless, students 3) identify the utility of Flip for practicing oral expression and reducing anxiety during activities. It is concluded that the proposal is relevant and effective for the PEA-UCR context. Further research is suggested to delve deeper into the topic and replicate the proposal in other educational contexts to assess its effectiveness
