To find out which is the best English course for Latin Americans who want to make real progress in English, it is necessary to look at the characteristics of the current course offerings on the market.
However, according to our experience at Lingua Language Center, there are fundamental variables that must be taken into account when choosing an English course: the communicative methodology, the focus on integrated skills, cultural contextualization and the capabilities of the teachers.
Characteristics of the best English language course for Latin Americans to take
Each of the following variables is justified in fairly conclusive scientific studies on the teaching of English.
The course should be based on a communicative methodology that encourages verbal interaction and constant practice of the language.
Focus on integrated skills
The English course should balance the development of the four main language skills: speaking, listening, reading and writing.
Research such as Nation and Macalister (2010) demonstrates that a focus on integrated skills promotes more balanced and efficient learning.
The English course should incorporate cultural aspects of the English-speaking world. According to Kramsch’s (1993) study, exposure to the target language culture facilitates understanding and appropriate use of the target language.
It is essential that teachers have the necessary training and experience to teach English as a second language.
According to a well-known 1998 study by Freeman and Johnson, the quality of teaching directly influences learning success.
