The Nature of Approaches and Methods in Language Teaching
Transcript of The Nature of Approaches and Methods in Language Teaching
Approaches and Methods in LT
Thank you for your attention!
In teaching practice, in order to apply a method effectively and efficiently, teachers should take these questions in mind: who the learners are, what their current level of language proficiency is, what sort of communicative needs they have, and the circumstances in which they will be using English in the future,
and so on
And one more thing...
- Richards & Rodgers' design of method describes 6 features of DESIGN.
- Virtually all LT methods make the assumption that what teachers "do" in the classroom can be conventionalized into a set of procedures that fit all contexts (Brown, 2007). We are now aware that such is not the case.
"NO single method can guarantee successful results."
“The first step toward developing an approach to language teaching will be to turn back the clock about a century to learn from the historical cycles and trends that have brought us to the present day.”
