Until recently, rural areas had been neglected by the Chilean Ministry of Education with respect to the teaching of English as a Foreign Language. In 2010, it implemented an audiovisual tool called It’s my Turn! in rural schools, believing that ICTs would come to solve the lack of English teachers in the country side. However, the efficiency and effectiveness of the program had not been evaluated, which this action research study sought to address. Based on data obtained through a survey and pre- and post-tests, we drew the conclusion that the ICT tool does promote the learning of English, although some changes need to be urgently made regarding its implementation, as it was also found that rural teachers were not using the teaching tool systematically.
