It's Been Said Before

Sounds Fascinating

By J. C. Wells

How do you pronounce biopic, synod, and Breughel? - and why? Do our cake and archaic sound the same? Where does the stress go in stalagmite? What's odd about the word epergne? As a finale, the author writes a letter to his 16-year-old self.

Title: Methods of Language Teaching
Written By: Blair Bateman
Baldomero Lago

Methods of Language Teaching is an innovative teaching tool which enables
upper level trainee teachers to witness language teaching methods being
applied in a classroom.

The DVD shows a series of lessons illustrating methods that have been
widely used, as taught by teachers who have made extensive use of these
methods in their own classrooms. The methods covered include the
Grammar-Translation Method, the Audiolingual Method, the Cognitive Code
Approach and the Total Physical Response Method.

Each method presented includes a brief textual description of the historical
background, the theories of language and language learning on which the
method is based, and an outline of a "typical" lesson. A video demonstration
of some of the most common teaching and learning activities associated with
the method is also included, as taught by a teacher in an actual classroom

Methods of Language Teaching is primarily designed for teachers and
students of language teaching methods, including ESL classes, but is also a
useful resource for anyone interested in methods of language teaching.
