The general goal of learning a foreign language is to reach the competences to communicate effectively with others. The interaction and oral production ability are crucial in the achievement of that goal. This research represents an effort to know closer the influence of the genre- based pedagogy (GB pedagogy) on learners’ interaction, and oral production ability towards the use of biographies as textual genre in the classroom. Research findings show that students became familiar with the basic structure and contents of the recount genre mentioned, as a life experience. The stages followed in order to work with biographies were found useful for the students who recognized the importance of structuring a text, to better understand how they work, and improve their communication using information from their own context to learn step by step how express what they really want to say. The deconstruction, joint construction and independent construction as the teaching learning cycle based on the GB pedagogy were placed into practice as an important attempt to fulfill the research goal.
