Description:The Challenge Approach is an innovative methodology for teaching English as a Foreign Language. It was derived from the experience of the instructors in the Training Program for English Teachers in Elementary School (PROCAPRI, in Spanish), an outreach program of the Universidad Nacional. This approach sets a challenge for teaching and learning that stimulates practitioners to exert an extra effort, triggers development of creative skills for successful achievement of different kinds of knowledge, raises nonverbal communication skills to the relevant position that the other language skills hold, and fosters implementation of implicit and explicit techniques to suit individuals' multiple cognitive processes.
