This document presents a proposal that integrates a string of didactic and innovative activities, by using Karaoke in a blended learning environment presented in a website and a booklet with an explanation of the activities, directed to reinforce tenth-grade EFL learners’ speaking skills. This proposal was created for students whose ages are around 15 and 18 years old from public schools located in Bogotá, Colombia. After some research about the population and the implementation of Karaoke in other projects, it was remarkable the lack of students’ motivation and difficulty to express and speak English. In return, this proposal promotes the development of speaking skills in this target population by implementing the use of Karaoke as a means to situate the context and meaning of songs in class discussions. In connection with the aforementioned, 4 cycles, with a total of 14 lesson plans of 120 min each, were created. This material was designed to help and guide teachers to develop the activities with students to foster their speaking skills through the implementation of Karaoke.
