DOGME teacing approach
Hi dear colleagues,
Have you ever tried DOGME in your classroom?  I decided to try this  method with my private student (45 years old) as he wants solely speaking practice and nothing else. I īve searched the net but the information I found deals mostly with either complementing or criticising the method or that it īs coursebooks free and not a word about the actual lesson. I īve found some activities S.Thornbury recommends but they are mostly for large classes.

 Is it that I just ask my student to choose a topic he would like to talk about , give him some time to prepare and then we start a discussion?

Thanks in advance

Here are some interesting videos about this method.

Hope it helps.

Thanks a lot, Lili, though I īm puzzled a bit now, do I understand the whole DOGME idea just wrong? (That īs a rhetorical questionSmile
