Abstract

In order to have access to better jobs and to lead successful professional lives in the globalized society we now live, higher education institutions in the country have begun to require their future college graduates to show command of an advanced level of the English language. As a result of these worldwide pressures, more English classes are offered to college students. At the University of El Salvador, the only public college of the country, several English classes are offered. However, these classes are overpopulated, particularly at the School of Economics. Students in large classes do not perform as well as students in small classes (Borden and Burton) The following are some of the most common factors that also have negative impact on the learners: poor classroom management, noise, teaching methodology, didactic material, lack of technological access among others. Teachers of English at the School of Economics have to take into consideration the elements that are related to large classes. In order to reach the outlined objectives during the semester and to improve the quality of student`s learning at the School of Economics as well as to enhance of just taking the subject without any benefit to them.
