The objective of this paper is to propose a Multimedia approach for the students in the Sports Degree at the University Pinar del Rio, Cuba learning English, based on Internet tutorials. This work is carried out to solve the scarcities of didactical materials that students have in this University concerning English teaching as a foreign language. The author felt motivated to create this resource after applying a diagnosis by means of a documentary review, a survey and an interview. These instruments revealed the importance of Information Technology for the language teaching in present times despite the poor existence of updated teaching materials in the Cuban Universities. Besides, these methods unveiled the deficiencies on the knowledge and skills of English Language seen from the perspective of digital learning resources. This work is developed using 28 students who will become sport professionals at the Local Sports Faculty. It also included 5 English teachers in the University, mainly those who have been involved in English teaching around sports matters. The tutorials on the internet are exhaustively selected and arranged from the simplest to the most complex items of grammar and communicative situations. The multimedia is made on Mediator.9 and edited in video and image professional programs. So far, it has greatly enhanced the learning experience of the students learning English language and has also been useful to the teachers as a valuable tool in this online teaching period during the COVID 19 pandemic.
