What has become apparent is that the ESL (English as a Second Language) and SSL (Spanish as a Second Language) methods must be updated to include technology in an innovative manner. Second language acquisition needs to be revisited and updated so that the methodologies can aid in the achievement of the target language coupled with cultural understanding. The methodology that has been implemented in language acquisition has maintained the focus on the theory of Stephen Krashen. It should be revisited and revised to accommodate the new generation of second language learners. With the advent of the global market there is an ever increasing necessity of proficiency of the target language. With the advances in technology the online component is increasing the need to modify the methods that were aimed for the traditional classroom. Taking the European Union’s Common European Framework Reference for Language as the springboard for acquisition and proficiency will provide other innovative methodology. The presenters will demonstrate how to revise the prior methods and contribute other formats that can be implemented for proficiency and assessment.
