  •   This is a pedagogical approach (not a method more) that is non-transmissive, non-academic, and not based on the classical "listen and repeat" process.
  • On the contrary, it continually encourages the learner to keep exploring and experimenting.
  •  It never demands rote learning, but leads to the conscious experience of the language so that the learners could establish their own inner criteria.
  •  It facilitates oral expression in all its aspects, in a playful, active and conscious way, right from the first minutes of a course.
  •  It does not consider the error as a fault, but as a valuable tool (for oneself as for others), thus facilitating the work on one's own hang-ups, fears, mental barriers.
  •  It fosters an extremely fine and dynamic work on pronunciation and the "music" of the language (phonetics, intonation, rhythm, energy), and therefore on listening and understanding.
  •  It offers high-performance tools, both synthetic and analytical, immediately applicable and designed to lead to all awarenesses necessary to master the language in a significant saving of time.
  •  It allows learners to have a language quickly available, not just knowledge of a language.
  •  It adapts perfectly to all profiles (auditory, visual, kinesthetic) and all ages.

  • The Silent Way is available in British English, American English, German, Spanish , Italian, Polish , Russian, Finnish, Chinese, Japanese, Hebrew, Arabic , Amharic , Lakota , French as a Foreign Language ...
