From GTM to TBM: An Overview

Taher Bahrani


The present paper aims at reviewing the pros and cons of some of the methods of language teaching which are currently employed in one way or another. In the same line, various methods which fall between grammar translation method to tasked based method will be considered. However, the point should be underscored that the present paper does not aim at favoring one method over the other one. Learner’s variables are important factors that make it very difficult to transcript one particular method for a given population of language learners. Accordingly, it is suggested that teachers should always be ready to divert from one method to another one when necessary.
