This action research report describes how storytelling became a useful strategy that favored fifth graders’ meaningful learning of English in a public institution at the municipality of Girardota. Outcomes reveled how telling students stories about their town and daily experiences became a meaningful learning process in which they improved not only their understanding of English, but also their writing and pronunciation skills. They also increased their confidence and participation in class. This paper indicates the importance of taking into account students’ prior knowledge, likes, and interests to incorporate them in the English class. It also corroborates the importance of using diverse educational materials to support students’ understanding of oral and written texts.
