  17. 17. 10 STUDENTS AGREED ON THE EFFICACY Cada lección se vuelve interactiva e interesante Las actividades repetidas son un poco inútiles Me ayudan al no ser las clases tan teóricas. Me ayudan a mejorar mi disposición y capacidades auditivas Me ha ayudado a motivarme e interesarme más por este idioma Nos motivan a poder expresarnos y a usar el inglés en las lecciones Las dinámicas son oportunidades para participar y mejorar el idioma. Cada lección es de mucha motivación y me ayuda a mejorar mi nivel de inglés.
  18. 18.        Use of Spanish completely affects students Passivity lowers students attention and learning More audio-visual material is needed Lack of challenging activities Students’ motivation are highly affected by what happens in the class. Classroom environment is not optimal There is still genuine language learning motivation
  19. 19.    More participation and communication Activities became more challenging and interesting Development of language at all levels.
  20. 20.        Tailor student’s expectations, needs and interests Keep in mind that the brain does not attention to boring things Bring more novel stimuli to the class Use more cooperative and BBT in the class Devise more tasks that make students experience emotions and feelings Keep in mind that every brain is different Research on more BBT practices to implement in the class
