A brief survey of language learning methods



In their book, Approaches and methods in language teaching, Richard and Rodgers analyze a number of currently-used or recently-used language learning methods, describing them in terms of the following elements:

  • the approach to the theory of language and language learning behind them
  • the design they use(specification of course objectives and syllabus, types of activities, learner roles), and
  • the procedure (techniques and activities) they follow

The modules in this section are based on Richard and Rodgers and are aimed to help you choose your own approach, method and techniques for language learning by informing you better about the choices you have.
