Abstract: Language teaching models are constantly changing. From learning based on a system of in-class, repetitive, grammar-oriented activities, we have moved to ubiquitous learning (u-learning), where the resources and tools used gain importance compared to elements such as time and space. In this scenario, TV series with integrated subtitles appear as a resource to improve listening, speaking and vocabulary skills among Spanish students of English as a Second Language (ESL). The main objective of this article is to present a case study that includes watching TV series as a continuous activity outside the classroom to motivate university students to achieve a real improvement in listening, speaking and vocabulary skills. This gives an additional boost to students’ language competences and introduces an extra motivation factor for them to continue using English outside the academic environment.
