4 Backward build-up (expansion) drill

Single-slot/Multiple-slot Substitu -tion drill Particular parts of speech occupy particular “slots” in sentences. Let students practice in finding and filling in the slots of a sentence.

7 IV. Conclusion Audio- Lingual is a great way to make the learners memorize the new sentences in a short time since it emphasizes on the repetition. However, our group thinks it may be a little time- consuming and the learners may get tired quickly. Therefore, we suggest the way may go well if the other methods are practiced at the same time.
