Sometimes we are confused, the terms "approach", "method" and "technique" in language teaching. Here I try to make some short understanding about them.
APPROACH ==> ASSUMPTION :An approach is a set of correlative assumptions about the nature of language and language learning
METHOD ==> PLAN :A method is a plan for presenting the language material to be learned and should be based upon a selected approach.
TECHNIQUE==> TRICK :A technique is a very specific, concrete stratagem or trick designed to accomplish an immediate objective.
Thus we can conclude that approach is translated into methhod that contains technique with series of procedure.
