Acquisition of English Language
Cássio Jânio Dos Santos Silva

This article reflects some questions which are the result of observations done in English language classes of some state schools in Salvador. Here some aspects of the teaching process are focused on. Deficiencies have been perceived when some classes were observed. Due to such a fact, some suggestions are given in order to improve the English teaching, having in mind the application of a public policy as well as the preparation of fluent speakers to communicate with international tourists. The theoretical foundation was based on Canadian, American, British, and Brazilian researchers.
