Abstract

The aim of this investigation was to explain the effects of the methodology used by Advanced English II teacher of the University of El Salvador Western Multidisciplinary Campus on Advanced English II students’ oral accuracy. The participants for this investigation were four Advanced English II students who were observed and interviewed during the investigation. For this investigation three data collection instruments were used: observation guide, checklist and semi-structured interview guide. These instruments were useful to gather information regarding the two variables of the investigation: 1) Methodology used by Advanced English II teachers and 2) Advanced English II students’ oral accuracy. Since this is a qualitative research, Nvivo 7 was used to categorize the information from the three sources to be analyzed thoroughly. After the analysis of the information, a body of conclusions and recommendations were built up. According to ELT experts such as Penny Ur (N.D.), Chaunren Ke (1995) and Sasson (2007), the implementation of the communicative approach undermines one important dimension of the English language which is accuracy. In the same sense, in this investigation, Advanced English II students also show high levels of inaccuracy in their oral production. That is why the body of recommendations was based on what these experts recommends doing when students are immersed in programs which the Communicative Approach is implemented. These recommendations lead, then, to include more deductive grammar in the instruction.
