Abstract

Through the years, the English language has become more and more popular and it is one of the most useful languages to learn around the world. There are simply huge amounts of literature and writings in the English language. It is also the standard language for world communication, especially in the fields of science, business, information technology and economy. Besides being an incredibly useful language to learn for business, the English language also opens the speaker up to a massive amount of culture, such as cinema, theatre, and music. Learning the English language will enable people to travel the world over, and to be understood by the local people who live there, enriching their travelling experience. Parting from that fact, the Foreign Language Department recognizes importance of this language and in its social labor seeks on projects that will generate an impact in the society and the culture as well. In this case, it seeks to impact students from the Foreign Language Department at the University Of El Salvador (UES), and the students from public high schools in the metropolitan area of San Salvador trough a project called EMPOWER. This project consists on teaching English to students from public high schools that had the desire not only of learning English, but also to continue studying at university level. This project started on March 17th, 2014 thanks to a partnership with the Foreign Language Department at The University of El Salvador, the United States Embassy in El Salvador, Pro-lingua Institute and Macmillan Publishers. By bringing the opportunity to teach English to the students from the high schools, the university students will improve their language skills and at the same time they will make either their professional teaching practices or it will be taken as their internship. As well, the high school students will learn in an intensive and advanced way the English language in order to bring them the opportunity to apply for a job after the project finishes
