Audio -lingualism is named based upon behaviourist theories of learning. PPP this method is more effective at lower levels. Nowadays, this method still used by many teacher training centers.But this method lack of flexible.It's easy to become too 'teacher-centered'.

Such lesson allow for a greater deal of flexibility and provide a nice balance between study and activation. There also offer many ideas for each phase?
