The main objective of this research was to determine the influence of Neurolinguistic Programming Techniques in the development of Speaking Skills, given that the students from 2nd BGU of the Unidad Educativa PCEI Juan León Mera could not express themselves correctly orally, using incorrect sentences with little use of vocabulary and no comprehension. It is in this context that this experimentation was proposed to be carried out with 30 students. A single group pre-test and post-test design was adopted for this study. The students' problems in the development of speaking skills were evaluated using the SPSS statistical program, applying the statistical test T student of related tests. Based on the results of the pretest, Neurolinguistic Strategies (Anchoring, Creating rapport, Mirroring, Maintaining the flow) were applied for 4 weeks during English classes. At the end of the application, a posttest was applied, and the result of the study revealed that students taught through neurolinguistics strategies had significant improvements in speaking skills.
