Talk:Approach, method and strategy
Looking at this I'm wondering what all methodologies have in common (if (anything) and at what points they differ.
Obviously the objective is the same - teach someone English. Where do they differ?
At one level they (I suppose) differ in the assumptions they make about how people learn. Within that, they also differ in the way in which they feel that the learning process can be helped by the teacher. By how much the teacher is seen as a facilitator and how much as an instructor.
