TEACHING METHOLODGY

We base our courses on the DIRECT APPROACH, and take the best from other respected methodolgies in the field. However, you can select any method you feel is suitable for your course. Below you will find some information about the Direct Approach

Direct Approach

Lessons begin with a dialogue using a modern conversational style in the target language.
Material is first presented orally with actions or pictures.
The mother tongue is NEVER used. There is no translation.
The preferred type of exercise is a series of questions in the target language based on dialogue or an anecdotal narrative.
Questions are answered in the target language.
Grammar is taught inductively – rules are generalised from the practice and experience with the target language.
Verbs are used first and systematically conjugated much later after some oral mastery of the target language.
Advanced students read literature for comprehension and pleasure.
Literary texts are not analysed grammatically.
The culture associated with the target language is also taught inductively.
Culture is considered an important aspect of learning the language.
