Abstract

The purpose of this study was to systematize the experience of the implementation of the project: "Learning by Teaching", developed at the Universidad Tecnológica de Durango, Campus Bilingual International and Sustainable (UTD Campus BIS, Mexico), which consisted in having students from this university teach English to students in basic education as a strategy for the learning of the language. In order to answer the main research question: “How did the experience of executors of UTD Campus BIS and the other agents go during the execution of the project "Learning by Teaching"?, the socio-critical paradigm was used through the method of systematization of experiences. Based on four axes of systematization: perceptions, difficulties, facilities and learning methods, and eleven categories that gave an account of the main results expressed by thirteen students (executors), who dealt with the fact that perceptions went from uncertainty, fear, nervousness and enthusiasm, to the satisfaction and the consideration of the project as a life experience were defined. The main difficulties arose in the areas of group management and in low English language level of project recipients.
