How were the DME coursebooks created?

The coursebooks are the collaborative work of expert teachers with several years of experience in teaching foreign languages with direct methods. When working on subsequent editions of the coursebooks, we used analyses of how the method is applied in practice as well as valuable comments from both teachers and students. Special emphasis was placed on current trends relating to foreign language teaching methodology.

What is the direct method?

It can be said that the main objective of the direct method is to teach the skill of communication in a foreign language through minimizing the use of the mother tongue during the lesson, as well as through training linguistic reflexes. This leads to thinking in the target language, and hence, the ease of using the target language in practice is gained. You can read more here.
