Nowadays, scientists and other professionals discuss much about the better way to learn English as a new or current language. Studies have shown that the old school way, teacher in front of the class just speaking for hours, is exhausting and inefficient for both the teacher and students. According to this, new teaching methods were developed to turn the classes more efficient and dynamic, such as the use of lessons that improve the researching skills, presentations to work the speaking abilities and the field trips to open the students’ mind.
In my opinion, the new methods work pretty well because they combine different skills to make the class more efficient.
