Dictogloss for English Language Teaching: An Experimental Lesson and Reflections

Jayaron Jose


While ELT emphasizes on well-known teaching approaches such as PPP (Presentation, Production and Practice) or Test-Teach-Test (TTT) for planning and implementing lessons, most EFL professionals rarely experiment with approaches such as Dictogloss, Silent Way, TBLT (Task Based Language Teaching), and so on. While an eclectic approach to teaching English can help achieve lesson aims better, deeper insights into specific approaches can sharpen teachers’ professional edge. Dictogloss, therefore, is one of such approaches that integrates all skills in planning and delivering ELT lessons. The researchers’ experiment with the approach of dictogloss and reflections are summarized in this article. The report includes the need for using dictogloss approach in ELT, a brief literature review, objectives of the experimental lesson, methodology, findings and analysis, recommendations, and conclusion. Overall, this qualitative study on the experimental dictogloss lesson and its reflections concluded at a positive note.
