- This qualitative action research study attempts to show how 'cycle three" students enhanced their oral communication skills based on cultural awareness, using materials centered on Colombian culture and on some micro skills such as communicative functions and use of body language. This research study was conducted in a public institution, with nine fifth, sixth, and seventh grade students by applying cooperative learning as the methodology for the development of the worksheets. The instruments to collect data were students' artifacts, teacher's field notes, and a video recording. The findings suggested that the worksheets based on cultural awareness enhanced students' oral communication skills, since they felt more confident and motivated to speak about their own culture and their reality facilitating their communication process. However, during this process, participants had to face some difficulties such as lack of linguistic resources, knowledge of cultural aspects, and communicative functions, which meant making a bigger effort to develop their oral communication skills.
