Direct Method English Program
Teaching language learners to genuinely communicate in English
The Direct Method Program is our core teaching methodology that we use to deliver our British English language programs in each of our Language and Cultural Centres. It is an easy, effective learning methodology delivered by native speaking English volunteers and teachers.
The method emerged in the 1890’s and is also known as the “natural method”. It focuses on teaching language learners to genuinely communicate in their second language. We use very little translation and prefer to explain and communicate directly in English explaining vocabulary through visual aids and miming.
Our Partner, Direct Language Lab provide the resources we need to successfully deliver this program. They use the foundational direct method teaching methodology combined with their more up to date, modern content to deliver a range of books, apps and online programs to enable effective and efficient second language acquisition.
