Methods of Language Teaching is an innovative teaching tool which enables upper level trainee teachers to witness language teaching methods being applied in a classroom.
The DVD shows a series of lessons illustrating methods that have been widely used, as taught by teachers who have made extensive use of these methods in their own classrooms. The methods covered include the Grammar-Translation Method, the Audiolingual Method, the Cognitive Code Approach and the Total Physical Response Method.
Each method presented includes a brief textual description of the historical background, the theories of language and language learning on which the method is based, and an outline of a "typical" lesson. A video demonstration of some of the most common teaching and learning activities associated with the method is also included, as taught by a teacher in an actual classroom setting.
Methods of Language Teaching is primarily designed for teachers and students of language teaching methods, including ESL classes, but is also a useful resource for anyone interested in methods of language teaching.
