Hi ESL learners,

The latest technique in learning a language is Content Based Instruction.

Content Based Instruction (CBI) is a powerful innovation in acquiring & enhancing a language. In its best form, language lessons are blended with stimulating content. The students focus on the subject matter then the language learning process. The students' success by engaging them in challenging & informative activity helps them learn complex skills. The students learn language automatically.

"Espoir Smart English' programs use this technique for teaching. The Program is Theme Based; topics are Cricket, Movies, Success Secrets, Love & Romance, etc.

This software is at the apex of English learning because it uses Content Based Instruction & Theme Based Learning together. The content is of High quality & interesting.

According to educational psychologists the only way to learn a language is through a subject we are passionate about. And this is especially true for adult English learners. Hence, learning a language in contemporary classrooms is not effective. Classroom's pattern of teaching is limited to grammar, reading & comprehension. The students are not particularly interested in the subject content & have few practical applications.

Conclusion:
The integration of language & content teaching is perceived by the European Commission as "an excellent way of making progress in a foreign language".

CBI effectively increases learners' English language proficiency & teaches them the skills necessary for the success in various professions.

With CBI, learners gradually acquire greater control of the English language, enabling them to participate more fully in an increasingly complex academic & social environment.
