I simplify everything and can teach beginners as well. Although the grammar-translation approach was one of the most popular language teaching methods in the past, it has significant drawbacks that have caused it to fall out of favor in modern schools. Principally, students often have trouble conversing in the second language because they receive no instruction in oral skills. The audio-lingual approach encourages students to develop habits that support language learning. Students learn primarily through pattern drills, particularly dialogues, which the teacher uses to help students practice and memorize the language. These dialogues follow standard configurations of communication.
There are four types of dialogues utilized in this method:
Repetition, in which the student repeats the teacher’s statement exactly
Inflection, where one of the words appears in a different form from the previous sentence (for example, a word may change from the singular to the plural)
Replacement, which involves one word being replaced with another while the sentence construction remains the same
Restatement, where the learner rephrases the teacher’s statement
This technique’s name comes from the order it uses to teach language skills. It starts with listening and speaking, followed by reading and writing, meaning that it emphasizes hearing and speaking the language before experiencing its written form. Because of this, teachers use only the target language in the classroom with this TESOL method.
Many of the current online language learning apps and programs closely follow the audio-lingual language teaching approach. It is a nice option for language learning remotely and/or alone, even though it’s an older ESL teaching method.
