Direct Method

The direct method of teaching came as a response to the shortfalls of the grammar-translation method, which works to teach  grammar and translate  vocabulary from  the native language of the student. The teacher would in this instance focus on repetitive patterns of teaching with grammar being taught inductively. In direct method teaches language by “use” not by “rule’. The direct method of learning English is fairly simple;

·      Show
·      Say
·      Try
·      Mould
·      Repeat

·      Teaches the language and doesn’t teach about the language
·      It’s better for students who have need of real communication in English
·      This method introduced the use of teaching vocabulary using real

·      Second language acquisition varies considerably from first language acquisition
·      Second language is learnt exactly the same way as the first
