    current approaches to language teaching


    I keep hearing a lot lately about the current approaches to language teaching and how these havebeen influenced by past methods, whilst I understand the past methods (direct, silent, audiolingual etc) I am confused by what the 'current approach' is and cannot find any info to define this in books or the net? Can anyone shed some light on this as I am beginning to think its just me who doesnt get it?

    Thank you all!!

    Current approaches are just that ..current ! ..I think it's the teaching method (in private teaching) of listening speaking and writing as an integrated approach to teaching and adapting to the students needs . Current approach in my opinion is whatever you are comfortable with and what works for you. It is also an interactive mixture of all types of approaches helping the student improve their overall integrated language skills.

    Not sure if this is the answer you expected!
