Background and Aim of Study: Since March 2020, the health pandemic caused by COVID-19 has led to the implementation of new teaching scenarios in which ICT tools have become the real protagonists of the learning process. With this situation, the use of Flipgrid has become an effective platform to improve EFL undergraduate students’ speaking skills.
The aim of the study: to demonstrate how a group of EFL undergraduate students’ oral linguistic competence improves thanks to the use of this tool.
Material and Methods: An empirical intervention was carried out with a group of thirty-three students, randomly assigned into a control and an experimental group during the first term of the academic year 2021-2022 in a public University in Madrid (Spain). As instruments for data collection, the grades obtained in the final speaking test of the subject English B2.2. were analyzed. The methodological framework is defined as an exploratory comparative experimentation that provides quantitative data analyzed with the SPSS statistical software.
Results: The results confirm the hypothesis that the use of Flipgrid is beneficial for improving English Studies undergraduate students’ EFL orality since there is a significant difference of p=0.02.
Conclusions: In the light of the results obtained in this research and the scarce studies focused on Flipgrid in the EFL classroom, it is advisable for teachers to use this collaborative tool to improve students’ orality since the asynchronous interaction among the students which came along with the development of interpersonal skills, and the easy management of Flipgrid, make it an excellent collaborative and motivating tool for EFL undergraduate students.
