Grammar translation method (GTM) : an effective and feasible method in Bangladesh context
MetadataShow full item record
A widely used method for language in Bangladeshi schools is grammar translation method (GTM). Grammar translation method is a very traditional method, and i think in more or less in all medium schools it is mainly used. I also use Grammar translation method for teaching the students. From my point view in our Bangladeshi culture especially beginner level of students need appropriate use of both native language (L1) and target language (L2). And for that reason grammar translation method is suitable. Also in Asian part of the world the parents are very conscious about their child's results. And GTM method also helps students to get good grades in English. Also students need to know the meaning of different words and GTM helps to fulfill that. I taught the students by GTM method which included some more activities and i think those techniques helped them a lot. So by a good feedback, well guidance from a teacher, effective error correction could give a student's progression and fluency. From my internship result I found that by GTM method and with my other efforts students developed a lot in their academic results and also in speaking fluency by target language (L2) where both are equally important.
