The Direct Method is known to be 4x faster than all those classic-ESL teaching-models.
World-renown companies like Pegasus, VMWARE, IBM, Maksisoft, Fiat (Birmot) or.. H&M around the world have chosen Direct Method as their number one source for English as a second language training for their employees and management teams. The lessons are often conducted using rapid question & answer activities to help build vocabulary both quickly and efficiently.
The classic line we hear from most people struggling in English in modern-day Turkey is “I can understand what you’re saying, I just can’t speak” or .. “The words are all at the tip of my tongue” etc. The problem behind the people behind these quotes is often that they’ve adopted a translation-based system of learning English which simply is inefficient, and quite frankly useless when put in to practice, especially in high-stress situations that require rapid answers and solutions.
People who learn English using the Direct Method learn English the way they’ve learnt Turkish and are more successful in every-way, they’re able to speak rapidly (regardless of their grammar knowledge) and it often leads to more confidence, meaning they don’t hesitate and aren’t afraid of errors! – This helps the teacher identify the students’ issues.
Direct Method uses a simple system based on several other ESL methods all banded together and shaped for Turkish people who want to learn English. Think of the Direct Method as a tailored English education-model.
