Has ESL in its current global form failed to achieve its primary purpose, helping learners to speak comfortably? I'd say "Yes" and I'd say it the failure was systemic. I'd been wondering if there was any research on it. This is what I found and how it links to what I created in 2001 and have been working on ever since, English Out There (http://englishoutthere.com)
