Classes at our school are held with using the combined method. Combined technique is based on communicative methods and classical methods, and in this case we select the best from both. If communicative methodology is better for the students who have more developed right cerebral hemisphere, which is responsible for emotions and creativity, than the students with well-developed left cerebral hemisphere that are prone to logical assimilation of information, generally prefer the classic methods.

Classical methods Communicative methods
This is what each of us used to see in school or at the university: the studing of grammar in isolation from speaking practice Outside of schools and universities communicative approach is very popular, which is based on the fact that we need a language for communication. Therefore, the teaching within the framework of the communicative methods is built on games and dialogue, without the emphasis on the grammar.

"+" students have a clear idea about the grammar
"+" a logical construction of the phrase
"+" ability to well understanding the written text
"+" “clear” speech and writing without errors

"-" language barrier, stupor in a live conversation
"-" a lot of knowledge and inability to use it
"-" boring lessons
"-" a small vocabulary

"+" no language barrier and fear in the conversation
"+" high emotional involvement in the lesson
"+" interesting and fun lessons
"+" large vocabulary

"-" full of errors speech
"-" there is no clear understanding of grammar
"-" gives the result only in case of the full immersion in the language (4 lessons per week)

We combine these two approaches and basing on the classical methodology we put to use the communicative methods (games, discussions, dialogue).
