Tests applied showed the existence of difficulties in the ninth-grade students’ oral expression in English at Carlos Manuel de Céspedes Junior High School in Holguín during the 2013-2014 school year. Empirical methods helped corroborate this problem: observation of lessons, survey to students, interview to professors and analysis of written documents (Syllabus) rendered problems in the integration of skills to improve ninth graders´ oral expression. A theoretical foundation of the research is presented in the first chapter with a diagnosis of the current state of oral expression and its connection to skill integration. It also includes a theoretical foundation for the connection between oral expression and skill integration in foreign language teaching. Chapter Two is devoted to present the proposal of the Diploma Paper: skill-integrating tasks to improve ninth-grade students´ oral expression in English at Carlos Manuel de Céspedes Junior High School in Holguín. Also, a corroboration item is included to verify preliminarily the feasibility and effectiveness of the proposal firstly through the Specialists’ Opinion (Survey), then in practice via a Pre-experiment. At the end of the corpus appendixes were added for the reader’s further clarification on the work done.
