There are many American centers in different cities which promise you that in just 3 months, you will be able to speak fluent English. I normally don’t want to say anything regarding the tall promise which they make but I am forced to write this post because they are playing with the lives of people. They are charging lots of money and their method of teaching is not what they should really be adopting. For example, it is important to teach “tenses” in the beginning to polish English skills.
Now, most of these centers don’t teach tenses. Perhaps, they believe in showcasing their work just by hiring “fluent speakers”. By seeing them speaking very well in English, we come under the false impression that if we just follow on what they say, then we will be able to speak fluent English. I can guarantee on the important aspect where if you don’t know tenses very well, then you will really be facing problems while constructing sentences because whatever sentence we make, has to do with tenses while other things come secondary.
The way they teach huge number of students in also objectionable
They have many students more than the desired capacity for an individual to understand and grasp things. Importantly, the kind of teaching methods they adopt, minimizes the possibility for anybody to ask queries.
Also, the level of English knowledge will be different for everybody all do all of them have gathered at a single platform with the same aim of polishing their verbal English. This is where that aspect of commercialization comes into force.
Don’t get swayed with fluent teachers in the academy
They may be knowing English very well but when it comes to systematically inspiring each and every single student in the class in a productive manner, then this is where the commercial angle plays its part. Since, the trainers will be more concerned about cosmetically inspiring you, than anything else.
Not much personal attention is given
Every single student in the class does have doubts in English and based on frequent queries only, the trainer can be in a better position to ascertain the level of your knowledge. Now, unless and until individual attention isn’t given, then how you can expect the progress to happen in a much needed manner.
My question is how can you expect that people in these centers will be able to speak fluent English in few months without paying individual attention? Yes, it is just a myth as most of the passouts lack basic English.
I would rather suggest you to practice yourself at home
How can I improve English at home?
- You should know tenses and also the ways of using them
- Stand in front of camera and speak while maintaining eye contact as well
I can guarantee that as you use these methods your English will improve. Likewise, your hard earned money will be saved as well.
