    What is the best teaching method for learning English?

    According to academic research,linguists have demonstrated that there is not one single best method for everyone inall contexts, and that no one teaching method is inherently superior to theothers. Also, it is not always possible or appropriate to apply the same methodology to all learners, who havedifferent objectives, environments and learning needs. The modern language teacher doesn’tfollow one rigid method, but applies the Principled Eclecticism approach fittingthe method to the learner, not vice versa. This means choosing the techniquesand activities that are appropriate for each particular task, context andlearner, with a focus on motivationand helping learners become independent and inspired to learn more.

    Please see the parts I have marked in red above. There are spaces missing between words and a space missing after your first comma.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    It sounds good, but does not suggest how this should be done.

    I always tell my students that there is no correct way to learn English. However, without frequent practice they will not be able to learn. Whatever skill you want to develop, that is the skill that needs to be practiced.
