The base is a mixture of audio lingual key feature and the communicative approach. However,  today’s teachers must count on the postmethod era along the way and as an extension. As the student makes progress we are up to date with the worldwide linguistic advances approved by the best expert linguists. They’ve got the English and the Portuguese perspective while teaching what gives them a proper sense for teaching foreigners. While explaining to a student they are aware of the cultural-linguistic equivalences and differences between at least two languages (pt/en). This makes a great difference in terms of quality and speed in the second language acquisition.
