the natural approach
Transcript of the natural approach
2. Teaching materials are designed very well. Students can acquire language from easy to difficult, from simple to complex, and from concrete to abstract. 1. Students may use the target language fluently, but they cannot use it accurately.
2. Teachers should collect various teaching aids and use them appropriately. Main features of the Natural Approach
1. The Natural Approach considers input as the most important element of any language teaching programme. Language is best taught when it is being used to transmit messages, not when it is explicitly taught for conscious learning.
2. This has several implications for classroom practice.① First, it implies that whatever helps comprehension is important. ②It implies that vocabulary is important. With more vocabulary there will be more comprehension and with more comprehension, there will be more acquisition. ③A third implication is the needs to be concerned primarily with whether the students understand the message. ④The fourth implication is that the classroom may be a very good place for second language acquisition. ⑤The last one is that effective classroom input must be interesting.
3. According to the Natural Approach, speaking is not absolutely essential for language acquisition.
4. The input hypothesis claims that the best way to teach speaking is to focus on listening (and reading) and spoken fluency will emerge on its own. The Natural Approach also claims that grammar instruction has a limited role.
5. Grammar use should be limited to situations where it will not interfere with communication. The time to use the Monitor is in writing and in prepared speech.
