Department of Modern Language Studies
Teaching Philosophy
(Updated 8/11)

While the Department of Modern Language Studies respects individual teaching styles, in general we espouse the communicative approach to language teaching, which is based on the pedagogic concept that language use in the classroom is contextualized, purposeful and meaningful.  Accordingly, the target language is the principal vehicle of communication in each class from the elementary-level through the upper-level.

With this methodology, the focus is on language acquisition and thus class time is primarily devoted to the practice of real language tasks, with the students increasingly at the center of these activities and the teacher serving as facilitator.
