The Structural Approach to learn English was widely used prior to 1960 in English speaking countries. Its efficacy has been proven by the generation who mastered the rudiments of English with less difficulty. As a result, this generation proceeded to make an impact in the respective fields of endeavour. All this was only possible with the help of the tool of expression, the English language. Mastery of the English language through the Structural Approach enabled them to convey to the world their ideas and ground breaking research flawlessly. It is not enough for one to be possessed with an inquiring spirit. The power to express our convictions makes a difference.
