What is inductive and deductive teaching?
In SLE, deductive teaching occurs when learners are explicitly taught rules before being given opportunities to use the target language. Inductive teaching occurs when learners are not taught structure directly, but left to discover rules from exposure and practice with the target.
Which is more effective teaching deductive or inductive?
Inductive tends to be more efficient in the long run, but deductive is less time consuming. Much depends on the teacher and the students. You might try and compare both of these approaches at certain points in your teaching to see which is more effective for your students.
What is inductive methods of teaching?
An inductive approach to teaching language starts with examples and asks learners to find rules. It can be compared with a deductive approach that starts by giving learners rules, then examples, then practice. Learners listen to a conversation that includes examples of the use of the third conditional.
