The most significant findings of our research work can be summarized in: first the teachers’ awareness and readiness of the efficiency of the suggested strategies, and the real application of those methods; second, students willingness to adopt and use these strategies in order to ameliorate their speaking skill proficiency. However, during our investigation we have encountered some difficulties in relationship to the lack of teachers in-service training in oral expression, the limited time which is allocated to the oral expression course, the lack of application of the new technologies and developments that characterize the teaching of the speaking skill. On the whole, our research brought many benefits to the students and teachers of our University.
