german German DIRECT METHOD








Like all Direct Methods concentrates on the aspect of a foreign language that is the most difficult to master - on speaking. With the use of the method the students learn by constantly speaking during the classes.
The lesson is arranged in the form of a specially designed dialog between the teacher and each of the students in the group. Every student has to answer the teacher's questions directly in the new language, in full sentences, and with the use of the currently practised new vocabulary or grammar points. The native language of the students is not used during the lessons at all or used only occassionally to introduce the new vocabulary that would be too difficult or too abstract to understand without translation. When the student speaks the teacher helps him and corrects him immediately. The teacher carries out the lesson at the top possible speed without unnecessary slowing down, thus making the students' ears used to the natural pace of the foreign language. At least 80% of the lesson is devoted to speaking. There is no need on part of the students to take any notes because everything the teacher says during the classes is recorded in the course books as well as on the CDs that accompany them.
