The learning process and life activities during the Covid-19 pandemic proceed through online social media, so there is a need for technological literacy. This activity also happened at the Pondok Pesantren Putri Sahlan Rosyidi Semarang where the academic abilities of the female students, especially the English language, were very diverse but there was still a lack of English-speaking practice programs that were integrated with digital literacy. Initial findings of the daily English-speaking ability of female students had an average of 65 which had to be improved again.
