Silent Way: Insights for ESL
Selman, Mary
TESL Talk, 8, 1, 32-36, Jan 77
The Silent Way emphasizes knowing the student and supporting the development of his self-awareness as a learner. Silence serves two purposes. The student learns to sharpen his listening skills because the instructor gives the model once. Silence eliminates interference so that short-term memory of an utterance is not destroyed. (CFM)
