As we have seen, the Grammar-Translation Method did not prepare people to use the target language. Oral drills are the key feature of this method. It views that all human learning is habit formation; then, language learning is also a process of mechanical habit formation. Completion: Students hear an utterance that is complete except for one word and the repeat of the utterance must be in the complete form.

Giving them names, attitudes and sometimes specific instructions about their opinion will keep the focus on what they need to say rather than on why they are saying it. In this activity, learners are required to take information that is presented in one way and reproduce it in another way.
This drill is similar to the single-slot substitution drill. Great importance is attached to pronunciation. The student responds, then turns to the student beside him and asks him a similar question. So avoid being nitpicky with individual sounds when practicing sentences! The teacher breaks down the line into several parts. It uses dialogues as the main form of language presentation and drills as the main training techniques. In the audio-lingual method errors are carefully avoided because they lead to the formation of bad habits in the foreign language.
For example, students might have to draw a map of their neighbourhood and answer questions about the location of different places, such as the nearest shop, the nearest cinema and other of the same kind. Expansion drills are used for difficult sentences. The audiolingual method I Key Features 1. Learners as well, play a major role in their own learning progress. Three Principles for language teaching-learning have been identified in the curriculum.
This method relies on repetition drills and as a result, it was used to teach large numbers of students at the same time. We agree with all the statement mentioned above. A group of students of mixed language ability carry out a play in which they have to adopt specified roles and personalities given to them on cards. The students repeat a part of the sentence, usually the last phrase of the line. Backward build-up drill: This drill is used when a long line of dialogue are giving students trouble.
This referred to a learning that allowed a conscious focus on grammar rather than learning simply in terms of habit formation. With respect to the theory of learning, it draws upon behaviorism. Question-and-answer drill This drill allows for learners to practice answering questions accurately and rapidly. In short, communicative competence is still called to question.

Some of the principles are similar to those of the Direct Method, but many are different, having been based upon conceptions of language and learning from these two disciplines.
Learners are taught set phrases in gruel repetition in response to certain questions, where the form and structure are 9 highlighted. When audio files are in digital format you need to convert them for a backup and data preservation. Unlike its predecessor, the Grammar Translation Method, which focuses on reading and writing skills, this approach chooses to emphasize on the first two stages in the natural order of language learning listening, speaking, reading followed by writing with the belief that learners who are better speakers and listeners consequently make better readers and writers. Textbook developers have wisely continued to include the best of audio-lingual in printed language materials. As we have seen, the Grammar-Translation Method did not prepare people to use the target language. Then, following the teacher's cue, the students expand what they are repeating part by part until they are able to repeat the entire line. In audio-lingualism, there is no explicit grammar.
It can also be done the other way round, where the learners form the questions on cue. This discussion aims to further understand the Audio-lingual Method and explore the advantages and disadvantages of employing it in the second language classroom. Some of the principles are similar to those of the Direct Method, but many are different, having been based upon conceptions of language and learning from these two disciplines. Instead of focusing on controlled, grammar specific, individualistic drills, communicative language teaching works with small groups and pair, practicing the skills of speaking and thinking collaboratively by interacting with peers.
