Conversation-driven teaching
Materials light approach
Emergent language
Dogme is learner-centered
Linguistic Theory
Language learning is an emergent phenomenon
It is self-organizing and comes from the learner, not imposed by external structure
Teachers engage learners in real-life communication
This pushes the students to produce more language and become more involved in the accuracy of their message
Environment in Dogme classroom lowers learner's affective filter to feel uninhibited in a second language
Language is personalized
If the teacher is well-prepared and eager, the Dogme method very positively benefits the students
Provides a confidence boost for the teacher when succesfull
Great way to get to know students and better understand their needs
