The language skills taught were speaking, listening, reading, and writing; while the components were grammar and structure, pronunciation, vocabulary, and spelling. The reading material was taken from Practice and Progress, one of the "New Concept English" series by L.G. Alexander.

The techniques used by the teachers were story retelling, memorizing vocabulary, reading aloud, dictation and translation, discussion, debate, dialog (question and answer), listening to cassettes, doing grammar exercises and drill, game and role-play, speech activity. The media available at PPAA were still picture, audio recorder, and realia. There was no library and laboratory.

The teachers and students did not face very serious problems during the teaching and learning process. Although the media available were very limited, the teachers were still able to conduct a proper teaching and learning process that made the students always actively participate when they were in class.
