English Language Teaching in the post method era
Abstract and Figures
Historically, English Language Teaching (ELT) methodologies have evolved from a constricted methodology-based to a complex post-method instructional practice. Several methodologies and approaches to ELT have been designed and applied in language classrooms worldwide, and while often successful, several challenges have emerged, possibly due to their limitation in nature. In my personal relection as an English teacher, while ELT methodologies still have their place in language classrooms, several other aspects must be considered in language learning. In this article, I will provide a brief introduction of ELT issues as a preamble to discuss what I find the most critical aspects of language teaching in the post-method era. A metaphor will also be introduced to illustrate the argument that knowledge of teaching methodologies merged with an awareness of the aspects discussed are vital for anyone who wishes to become an English language teacher in the post-method era.
