Classroom instruction, not really effective
Do you think that classroom instruction for a short period of 3 or 6 months is going to make you speak fluent English? Mind you, even if you get classroom instruction for a long period, that’s not likely to be really effective — as far as fluency development is concerned.

For example, take the case of most people who have Bachelor’s or Master’s degrees (in English itself or in other subjects) — in countries where English is a second language. By the time they complete their degrees, they would have learnt English as a separate subject of study in classrooms (at school and college) for at least 5 to 10 years. That too, from about 5 to 10 different teachers. And they would also have learnt various other subjects through English in classrooms for at least 5 to 10 years. Yet, by the time they get their degrees, do they become fluent enough in English to speak it fluently?

So don’t be under the impression that classroom instruction is a sure cure for all your fluency problems – even if it stretches over several years. Now if classroom instruction (in English and through English) for as long a period as 5 to 10 years cannot produce fluency in you, do you think that classroom instruction for a short period of 3 or 6 months more is going to make you fluent?
