Working with the Costa Rica Multilingual Foundation, the Costa Rican Ministry of Education, Costa Rica USA Foundation of Cooperation, the Inter-American Development Bank, and the researchers are completing a randomized trial study related to the effectiveness of technology-based English instruction. The purpose of the Enseñanaza del Inglés como Lenguaje Extranjero (EILE) is to conduct an analysis of three differing English language programs across 81 specified Costa Rican Elementary Schools: (a) a technology-based intervention that is transitional, (b) a technology-based intervention that is English immersion, and (c) the typical practice English as a foreign language program. Lastly, we found that all groups of English language learning elementary students in Costa Rica improved in oral language development with specific English language instruction.
