Digital content creation has undoubtedly become part of this new digital age where everything is related to technology. Additionally, digital content is increasingly common when learning a new language or any other subjects. This may be due to the multiple benefits that digital resources may offer to them. This study aims to explore the digital content created by LI students from the University of Quintana Roo, Campus Chetumal to learn English as a foreign language. Moreover, this study was based on a qualitative design; hence, naturalistic data was collected. To test how digital content creation is related to English language learning, a semistructured interview was applied to 10 EFL university students. The results showed a large difference between their responses, since each one had a different point of view regarding the use of digital content in learning English as a foreign language. Furthermore, the findings revealed that not everyone has the same skills for digital content creation, which means that the learning process of LI students goes hand in hand with the skills they have to create digital content, the resources they have, and the modality in which they learn. Lastly, based on the outcomes of this thesis, several recommendations have emerged. It is intended that EFL university students begin to implement the use of digital content to learn and improve the language. Besides, it is hoped that universities include it in their curricula.
