Q: What the method of learning English you think is the best ?
A: From my point of view, there is no such thing as "the best way to learn a language", It all depends on what YOU like to do.

Books are always mentioned as one , but if reading is something you dislike doing, then you won't learn as much as other people do.

I would say that , if you love watching movies , then watch movies with subtitles. If you love music then learn the lyrics and sing along. If you love video games then play videogames and get a diccionary with you to read it.

As long as you enjoy the way you are learning it you will surely learn a new language

There are a few more peculiar and you either practice them over and over, or wait until they sink in after some exposure to the language ( reading, TV, talking to other people).

Ex: I get on the bus. I get in the car.
Q: I think it is fine to continue the same method. Does this sound natural?

A: Don't use 'more' with 'better'.

You can say:
We seem to have a better method to deal with the situation.

We would like to suggest a better alternative.

It's quite rare to say "if I may intrude" even in a professional level because when you said that, you actually have intruded the conversation. :) If you still not feeling comfortable to say something during a serious debate, you can say 'Excuse me'. Try to be confident to say whatever you need to say.
