THE DIRECT METHOD
The Reform Movement TheDirectMethod Linguists, such as Henry Sweet (1845-1912)in England, Wilhelm Viëtor (1850-1918) İn Germany, and Paul ÉdouardPassy (1859-1940)in France too became interested in the controversies that emerged about the best way to teach foreign languages, and ideas were fiercely discussed and defended in books( The Practical Study of Languages by H. Sweet), articles and pamphlets(Language Teaching Must Start Afresh by W. Viëtor). Reformers in the late 19th century shared many beliefs about the principles on which a new approach to teaching foreign languages should be based.
TheDirectMethod The late nineteenth-century reformers shared the following beliefs: Knowing a language is being able to speak it. Great stress on correct pronunciation and target language from outset. Second language learning must be an imitation of first language learning, as this is the natural way humans learn any language. The written word / writing should be delayed until after the printed word has been introduced. The learning of grammarductively/ translating skills should be avoided. All above items must be avoided because they hinder the acquisition of a good oral proficiency.
The Direct Method    Teachers, frustrated by the limits of the Grammar Translation Method in terms of its inability to create communicative competence in students, began to experiment with new ways of teaching language like Direct Method in post-war and depression era classrooms. This method’s name comes from the fact that meaning is to be conveyed directly in the target language. And it’s also called Natural Method as it’sbased on thewaychildrenlearntheirnativelanguage.
DirectMethod Aim: The Direct Method aims at establishing the direct bond between thought and expressions and between experience and language. It is based on the assumption that the learner should experience the new language in the same way as he experienced his mother tongue. Its main features are: Only the use of target language is allowed in class, Students are encouraged to think in the target language, Grammar should be taughtinductively, This method is based on sound principles of education.It believes in introducing the particular before general, concrete before abstract and practice before theory.
The teacher should demonstrate not explain or translate, Vocabularyshould be learned in fullsentencesratherthanmemorizingwordlists, Pronunciationshould be worked on rightfromoutset, Self-correctionfacilitateslanguagelearning,, First speaking is taught and then reading and writing,  The learner should be actively involved in using the targetlanguage in realistic everyday situation,  Thesyllabus is based on situationsortopics, not usually on linguisticstructures, Objectsshould be usedtohelpstudentunderstandthemeaning. DirectMethod
