  10. 10.    50% of the students are from Nicaragua. 45% of the students are from Costa Rica. 5% of the students are from another countries.
  11. 11.   45% of the students affirmed to have a health condition problems, 55% of the students denied to have a health condition.
  12. 12.  85% of the students are agree that to study English now days it is very important, 10% of them are disagree about the English importance, and the 5% are not sure, they say that English is not at obstacle for their activities.
  13. 13.  40% of the adults consider that they do not have extracurricular time to review what they studied in class, because different situations, work, housework. 30% say they sometimes take time to study out of school,15% say that they study few times and the 15% always review what they are learning at school.
  14. 14.  There are 45% of the students consider that games are what they most enjoy in English class. 30% said that they enjoy writing exercises , 20% of the individuals enjoy oral conversations, 30% of the students like writing exercises and 5% enjoy singing songs.
  15. 15.  60% of the students answered that they feel always motivated to take English class, 20% said that sometimes they feel motivated to take the English course. 15% of the adults said that the usually are motivated and the 5% of them never feel motivated.
  16. 16.    There are a lot of factors that make English language acquisition more difficulty in adults as we see the research results. Age:The brain loses plasticity,lateralization of the language function is normally completed at puberty, making post-adolescent language acquisition difficult. Academic level of knowledge of the student it is very important because teachers can planning according the prior knowledge, skills, beliefs, and concepts they have Bransford, Brown, and Cocking, How People Learn (2000, p. 10) New knowledge is built on existing knowledge. Thus, when teachers are planning a class it is important to determine what your students are likely to know coming into the class and (later in the planning process) how well they know it.
  17. 17.    Nationality:When students from different cultures share a classroom it is important to consider how cultural background can affect classroom dynamics and learning. Health:person's ability to understand speech, especially in the presence of background noise. Visual acuity also decreases with age. Hearing and vision problems are not restricted exclusively to the older learner, however. It is important that the classroom environment compensate for visual or auditory impairments by combining audio input with visual presentation of new material, good lighting, and elimination of outside noise (Joiner,2001). Not being able to read is not just a physical or mental inability, Tragically, the largest barrier of not being able to read is the block to employment possibilities. The end result is that adults can only seek and apply for jobs in manual labor, production lines, or working in laboring positions where reading is not required.
  18. 18.   Another conclusion is adults are relevancy-oriented they must see a reason for learning something. Learning has to be applicable to their work or other responsibilities to be of value to them. Unlike children and teenagers, adults have many responsibilities that they must balance against the demands of learning. Because of these responsibilities, adults have barriers against participating in learning. Some of these barriers include lack of time, money, confidence, or interest, lack of information about opportunities to learn, scheduling problems, problems with child care and transportation.
  19. 19. Questions to consider when the teacher prepare the lessons:  1-Will the students know anything about the topic?  2-If not, how can I introduce the topic?  3-Will the students be interested in the topic?  4-If not, how can I make it more interesting and bring it to life?  It is better to use material that is aimed at younger students with older students, teachers have to be careful. Teenagers and adults especially can find it insulting to be presented with childish material when they believe they are ready for something more grown up. Questions to consider when preparing the lessons:  1-Is the activity appropriate for the age group?  2-If not, how will I bridge the gap?  3-What’s the point of the activity?  4-What will students be learning?  5-Should I explain to the students why we’re doing the activity?
  20. 20.     Classroom Practices. Helping adults to succeed. Comfortable environment. Show them that you are on their side.
