AbstractThroughout time, society and educational systems have been looking for different ways on how to teach in the classroom, how to apply different teaching models for educational purposes through different theories in the classroom. Those processes are different for every single group, such as: children (pedagogy), teenagers or young adult (pedagogy), and adults (andragogy). Every group has different learning processes in which the theories, resources, teaching system and methodology are important. That is why we as students of the FLD of the University of El Salvador wanted to investigate this topic. We considered that other students and teachers could take advantage of this research project, because relevant and important information and details were added, regarding the adult learning applied to a second language, in this case: English. Teachers and students will know more about the effects of factors influencing adults on their English learning. We wanted to demonstrate to others which activities they could apply, how they could teach English in the classroom to adults and how they could take advantage of the experience that adults have already acquired in order to teach a second language successfully. Teachers need to be aware that in this profession it is not going to oriented to teach only children or teenagers; they may have the opportunity to teach adults. If future teachers do not know anything about this topic, they are not going to expand their knowledge and will not gain more experience either. In this case, this research will present a contribution to the Foreign Language Department and its students. Teachers have to appeal to methodologies and systems that are significant for developing effective and meaningful learning for adults. Teachers can facilitate the learning process, designing a system that simplifies and satisfies the needs of students during the class. In this context, the perspectives and contents presented will contribute in the development of effectiveness of the learning process.
