“This thesis explores the relationship between the factors and effects of oral language exposure in native and non-native environments. Therefore, misunderstandings and struggling to perform a language has to do mainly with little exposure, practice and interaction. Hence there is a contrast of effects resulted of being exposed to different language settings, in this case, native and a non-native environments. First of all, we would like to state that LEI stands for Licenciatura en Enseñanza del Inglés, a BA in English offered at Benemerita Universidad Autonoma de Puebla, University in Puebla, México. We want to point out that when we say lack of practice, we are referring to low interaction that LEI students face when they are exposed to other classmates inside the classroom. We mentioned this, because we have observed that most of times when students are asked to speak about any topic they want, they usually have difficulties to communicate their ideas, due to insufficient opportunities they have to develop their oral skills, taking into account that oral skill is developed through constant practice rather than explanation.”
