Teaching Style :
As much as possible,teach new material (vocabulary, rules of grammar) in the context of situations to which the students can relate in terms of their personal and career experiences, past and anticipated, rather than simply as more material to memorize (intuitive, global,inductive).
Balance concrete information
(word definitions, adjective-noun agreement) (sensing) and conceptual information (syntactical and semantic patterns, comparisons and contrasts with the students¡¯ native language) (intuition) in every course at every level. The balance does not have to be equal, and in elementary courses it may be shifted heavily toward the sensing side, but there should periodically be
something to capture the intuitors¡¯ interest.
Balance structured teaching approaches that emphasize formal training (deductive, sequential) with more open-ended unstructured activities that emphasis conversation and cultural contexts of the target language (inductive, global).
Make liberal use of visuals.
Use photographs, drawings, sketches, and cartoons to illustrate and reinforce the meanings of vocabulary words. Show films, videotapes, and live dramatizations to illustrate lessons in texts
