Total Physical Response
Total Physical Response is considered to be an excellent way of learning vocabulary. Moreover, since it is based on commands, the students can easily learn the meaning of the words in the target language.
The Structural Approach
This method is based on the opinion that it is imperative to understand the structures of the language. Understanding the complexities of the structures of the sentences in a language is more important than learning the vocabulary of the language.
The Direct Method
This method primarily focuses on the development of oral skills. One of the most important characteristic feature of this method is that visual materials and real-life objects are used. Moreover, such an oral training helps in reading and writing. There is no translation involved in this method.
