The Direct Method
In this method the teaching is done entirely in the target language. The learner is not allowed to use his or her mother tongue. Grammar rules are avoided and there is emphasis on good pronunciation.
Learning is largely by translation to and from the target language. Grammar rules are to be memorized and long lists of vocabulary learned by heart. There is little or no emphasis placed on developing oral ability.
The theory behind this method is that learning a language means acquiring habits. There is much practice of dialogues of every situations. New language is first heard and extensively drilled before being seen in its written form.
I am a 21 years old student at the University of Surrey in Guildford, 40 minutes from London. I am a native speaker with experience in how to study a new language since I had to study English, French and Spanish for most of my academic years.
Chiara is a trustworthy and intelligent tutor. She has a high proficiency in the Italian language and I would recommend 10/10!
