This action research project explored the possible effects of three social strategies in participants‟ oral interaction while they are communicating between peers in class tasks. The project was carried out with a group of thirteen students at a private university located in Chía, Colombia. They were enrolled in different undergraduate programs and took English as a graduation requirement of their programs. At the end of this qualitative research, the gathered data demonstrated that the students were able to interact, use the language to transmit and convey messages and, improve two linguistic components (vocabulary and fluency) along with their self-confidence when speaking.
