It may seem that THIS kind of problem only concerns people who are going to learn a foreign language. It is of course the question of HOW to do it, no matter whether you wish to master English, German, Spanish or any other language. When you want to learn something new or just improve your foregoing skills, you always look for the most efficient way to do it.
But what about people whose job and passion is to transmit their knowledge to other people? Yes! They always look for the best way, too. As you probably suspect, there is not one 'perfect' way of teaching. There are many different factors such as the teacher's skills, disposition, experience and attitude towards students and – last, but not least – THE METHOD of teaching.
You should check up on various methods in order to find out which one is the most suitable for you as a teacher as well as effective for your students or customers. We would like to present to you a tried and tested method of teaching languages: the direct method, on which the coursebooks published by the Direct Language Lab team are based.
The basic purpose of this method is to encourage students to overcome their fear of speaking, from the very first lesson. Just take a look at the video below to find out more about the direct method:
