Resumen

Este artículo tiene como objetivo reportar los hallazgos parciales de una investigación que pretende explorar cómo las Redes Sociales para el Aprendizaje de Lenguas (RESAL) pueden integrarse en las clases de inglés de una licenciatura en lenguas modernas. Más específicamente, este artículo reporta las percepciones de los estudiantes antes y durante la implementación de una RESAL (Busuu). Los datos se recopilaron mediante dos técnicas: encuestas y registros de aprendizaje. En cuanto a las percepciones de los participantes antes del uso de Busuu, el análisis de la información muestra que, a pesar de algunas preocupaciones sobre la capacidad comunicativa y la privacidad personal, percibieron este tipo de comunidades virtuales como plataformas efectivas para aprender una lengua extranjera a través de una interacción auténtica con otros usuarios. 

Keywords
