From Grammar-Translation to Direct to Audiolingual to What?
Hammerly, Hector M.
This article on language instruction elaborates on assumptions, procedures, and techniques used in the implementation of various teaching methodologies. Equally critical of the grammar-translation method and the direct method, the author points out the strengths of the audiolingual approach. The lack of controlled, scientific investigation of the nature of language learning is deplored in an attack on the methodologies which appear merely to be passing fads. (RL)
