The Audio-Lingual Method of Teaching English:

The Audio-Lingual Method of Teaching English Produced by William Lake http://blog.about-esl.com

Introduction:

Introduction Originated from the Behaviourist theory of learning languages! Also known as the “Army Method”! Popularised by the need to learn basic skills in foreign languages during World War 2. Focuses on repetition drills.

Language Focus:

Language Focus Similar to the earlier Direct Method. Teaches the language directly! Doesn’t focus on teaching vocabulary. Students are drilled in the use of grammar.

Methodology:

Methodology There are 4 parts to the Audio Lingual method. Repetition Inflection Replacement Restatement

Repetition:

Repetition The students repeat what the teacher says: Teacher: I want to buy some fruit. Students: I want to buy some fruit. The students copy the teacher word for word.

Inflection:

Inflection The teacher says a word or sentences, the students change the form! Teacher: I want to buy some fruit. Students: I wanted to buy some fruit.

Replacement:

Replacement The teacher says a sentence and the students replace a word in the sentence. Teacher: I want to buy some bananas. Students: I want to buy some apples.

Restatement:

Restatement The teacher says a sentence and the students rephrase the sentence. Teacher: Tell me to speak louder! Students: Speak Louder!

Lesson Example:

Lesson Example Teacher : There's a pen in my bag. Student: There's a pen in my bag. Teacher : Pencil. Student: There's a pencil in my bag. Teacher : Book. Student: There's a book in my bag. Teacher : On the Desk. Student: There's a book on the desk.
