Classroom methods for teaching a foreign language

Learning a new foreign language is undoubtedly a challenging process, especially if the student has never had to deal with the language before, as it takes a long time for a student to become perfectly familiar with all aspects of it. Moreover, one of the great difficulties associated with learning a new foreign language has always been linked to the conduct of lessons, which in many respects have always been considered uninspiring and boring by the student. The advent of new technologies, however, has made it possible to take a ”step forward”, replacing traditional methods with new ones that are considered effective and stimulating by the student.
