Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) education has become the centre of attention in the education area since the beginning of this century. In view of the accelerated development of the 21st century, to develop a critical and creative thinking for improving the student competences is imposed. That’s why without the good development of language it is unable to implement the STEM education. And if the students can manage more than one language they would be more competitive. This proposal demands the students demonstrate they are able to express themselves using a foreign language in their field of action though an academic dissertation. It also facilitates the interdisciplinary and transdisciplinary development, integrating the language with the specialty. For the development of this research empirical and theoretical methods were used in order to: assess the trends of the teaching-learning process of languages, determine the main scientific foundations that support the proposal and corroborate its reliability through workshops critical opinion and collective construction. Among the basics analyzed are the communicative competences, the theory of verbal activity, the Communicative Approach, the Teaching of English for Specific Purposes, the Historical-Cultural Approach, the Humanist Approach, the teaching development, the curricular design, and the STEM Education.
