Approaches & Methods for language acquisition
  1. Grammatical Approach
    1. Grammar- Translation Method
      1. Focused on language rules
        1. Memorization of vocabulary
          1. Application of language rules & exception to vocabulary to translate written text
            1. Isolated sentences
              1. Complex texts
                1. Not for meaning
                2. Focus was on grammatical accuracy
                  1. Students native language is not used
                  2. Focused on knowing about a language instead of emphasizing how to use the language for intended purpose, communication.
                    1. Thought that students first language "interferes" with new language acquisition and that both languages are structured differently; syntax rules can cause confusion
                      1. Memorization of language rules & sentence patterns
                        1. Nouns
                          1. Verbs
                            1. Conjuctions
                              1. Adjectives
                                1. Pronouns
                                  1. Possessive
                                  2. curriculum is sequenced and methodical
                                    1. Instruction is isolated from meaningful context
                                      1. Drills & practice focus on sentence structure
                                        1. Agreement rule
                                          1. Idiomatic usage
                                            1. Does not provide comprehensible input
                                              1. Strategies: Drills & practice Rote memorization
                                                1. Techniques: Dialogue, Repetition, Mnemonics, Kinetics
                                          2. Direct Method
                                            1. Replaced Grammatical- Translation Method
                                              1. Less focus on grammar rules & structure
                                              2. Focus on repetition & memorization of L2 patterns
                                                1. Vocabulary is taught in context through dialog and choral response
                                                2. Inferred grammar through exposure of carefully sequenced, guided instruction of L2
                                                  1. Teacher models & student practices language patterns
                                                    1. The goal is to internalize grammatical patterns
                                                  2. Students native language is not used
                                                    1. Translation is discouraged
                                                    2. Objects, photos, diagrams,& drawings used to help comprehension
                                                    3. Audiolingual Method
                                                      1. Material presented though dialogue
                                                        1. Consistent teacher feedback
                                                        2. Acquisition is "habit" formed
                                                          1. Thought that second language would become a habit through drills and dialogue which would develope language structures
                                                            1. Language acquisition through memorization & recall of L2 language patterns
                                                          2. Grammatical structures & vocabulary are taught in a highly sequential manner
                                                            1. Skills are sequenced- listening, speaking, reading, & writing
                                                            2. Use of L1 is permitted by teacher only
