This study aims at exploring students’ narrative learning experiences from an English for Specific Purposes (ESP) course in Monte de Galilea-Usme, as part of the university outreach work. Researchers are interested in considering the impact of “English for Hotels and Catering” course on students’ personal, academic and work goals so that curriculum and classroom dynamics can be considered as socially constructed, negotiated, and adapted to the learning environment. This project belongs to a qualitative, descriptive and interpretative research study in which narrative inquiry methodologies are applied in order to achieve its research aims. The outcomes of the study will shed some lights on the role of the Fray Bernardo de Lugo Language Institute outreach work, its relevance and pertinence of the ESP program and the recognition of the importance of students’ voice in their learning processes.
