Inside or Outside of Classroom?
In the past few decades, there has been a considerable increase in interest in providing input rich environment to language learners. This article aims to discover whether learning opportunities outside the classroom can improve learners' English proficiency in their speech. This paper focuses on the assessment of oral performance of two different groups of ELT (English Language Teaching) students: The first group is composed of 4th year ELT students who had the opportunity to practice their target language in a native speaking country, whereas the second group did not have the chance of using their English outside the classroom.
