LEARN ENGLISH IN USA: USA Learns vs. Academies
USA Learns is a program that began in 2008, developed by the United States Government to help people to start learning the English language for free. It is specifically designed for adults who want to learn English as a second language and is available to residents of United States or any foreigner who wants to learn the fundamentals of the language.
Here we will give some differences between the teaching proposals of USA Learns and the English academies in United States
English academies tend to have smaller classes, which allows for more personalized attention and opportunities to interact and practice the language with other students. Free options may have larger class sizes due to high demand and resource limitations.
Focus on specific objectives:
English academies in the United States often focus on specific goals, such as test preparation, professional skills development, or improving conversational English. Free options as USA Learns can be more general in focus without much focus
Local academies and USA Learns often offer high-quality teaching with teachers who are trained and experienced in teaching the language.
Evaluation and monitoring
English academies usually offer periodic evaluations and individualized monitoring of student progress. Free options may have fewer resources to continuously track student learning and are focused on the self-learner.
USA Learns may lack direct interaction with teachers and classmates, which may limit the opportunity to practice English orally and intellectually unlike many English academies
The free program can be more general and less personalized in focus compared to academy classes, which can make it difficult to tailor to the learner’s specific needs and goals.
It is important to consider these pros and cons when deciding on the English program that best suits your learning needs and preferences.
