Teaching methods

The communicative approach is the basic method when the learners are involved in real communication, their natural strategies for language acquisition are used, and this allows them to learn how to use the language in different situation outside the classroom.

Lessons are only in the target language and teachers explain everything and don’t translate.

The texts provide not only context for grammar and vocabulary but systematically develop students’ reading and listening skills. All grammar points are contextualized and students analyze and understand grammar through an inductive approach with reference to examples in the texts. 

Emphasis is on the development of independent learning across all levels including the extensive work on study skills, good study habits and self-assessment.

 

What is the benefit of the communicative approach?

The greatest benefit is that it works effectively with both types of students - those who are shy and quiet and those who are always very active and talkative during the study process.  If you are a shy student you will receive a positive support from the teacher who will encourage you and involve in different classroom activities. Step by step your self-confidence will grow, you will become more active in the study process to use the language. If you are a very active person and fluent in language this is a great possibility to be a positive partner for your groupmates in situation dialogues, pair and group activities, discussions, presentations.  At the same time, the attentive teacher will follow if you use the appropriate vocabulary and will correct grammar mistakes if you have any.
