An educational intervention was developed in 50 students of the second level of the Bachelor of Agroindustry degree at the Escuela Superior Politecnica de Chimborazo. The intervention consisted of identifying the level of the linguistic skills of the students at the beginning; from there, to propose communicative strategies and activities to improve them. After the intervention, the results were compared by using the T-student test in the SPSS statistical software and it was determined a significant incidence in final results. At the beginning of the study, low levels were registered in all language abilities; however, they considerably rose. Important improvement in listening, reading, speaking and writing was evidenced. Finally, it is concluded that the intervention improved the level of the students of the Bachelor of Agroindustry career on the skills related to its learning.
