LEYVA REYES, José Antonio; BALLESTER, Luisa Regalón; LEYVA REGALON,, José Antonio  and  MAYOL CESPEDES,, Irisleydis. Jazz Chants to promote the oral production in students of english as a foreign language. ReHuSo [online]. 2022, vol.7, n.1, pp.19-32.  Epub Apr 03, 2022. ISSN 2550-6587.

This work is based on a quasi-environmental approach and it was carried out in the second year of the English Language career at the “Escola Superior Pedagógica do Kwanza Norte” (Kwanza Norte Pedagogical Higher School), Angola. It was aimed to promote oral production in terms of fluency, accuracy, pronunciation and intonation, by applying the Jazz Chants method in the teaching-learning process of the subject Practice of the English Language II. In the study, the parametric Student's t test was performed to determine the significant differences between the means from the pre-test and post-test developed before and after applying the Jazz Chants. These evaluations were correlated with the responses of a Likert-type questionnaire, applied to the sample for self-evaluation. The results showed the acceptance of the Jazz Chants by Angolan students in the subject Practice of the English Language II and a positive impact on the fluency, accuracy, pronunciation and intonation of the students.
