Abstract:

Learning is an active communication between students and the teacher, so it does not have

a one-way property. Basically, the success of the process of teaching a foreign language directly depends on
the teacher. Each teacher, based on his professional experience, chooses methods and techniques of work.
Language teaching approaches and methods have cast light on the language teaching theory and practice.
There are still many controversies about their usefulness and appropriateness. This article tries to analyze the
effectiveness of one of the most influential teaching methods: Grammar-translation Method, in order to have
a better understanding and application in the future teaching practice. Using theoretical materials made in
this sphere, it is obvious that, there is no inherent contradiction between grammar instruction and
communicative approach, and a sort of explicit grammar instruction can complement communicative
language teaching to raise learners’ conscious awareness of the form and structure of the target language.

In the modern methodology, the problem of finding and choosing the most appropriate techniques

and methods of teaching foreign languages that would meet the requirements of the standards of modern
education remains relevant. Nowadays, there are many productive methods for learning a foreign language in
higher educational institutions. Each of the methods has its own characteristic features. This article will
consider the grammar-translation method of teaching as one of the effective methods for students to learn a
foreign language. Practice shows that the grammar-translation method is the main one in the modern
education system. Despite the fact that it is a classic method that has been used for more than one decade,
most teachers use it actively in the educational process.

The basic principles of grammar-translation method are: 1) the written word, as a basis for training;

2) memorizing grammatical rules and words and composing sentences based on them; 3) assimilation of
language material by translation and mechanical memory, as well as the use of analogy based on the mother
tongue.

GTM claims that students can easily understand the target language by memorizing the grammatical

rules and structures of the target language. In grammar, translation is taught deductively, with an emphasis
on memorizing grammatical structures and vocabulary. Grammar rules are taught and students learn the
language by practicing the rules authentically. The student learns the language to become familiar with the
literature in the target language. The text in the second language is translated into the local language;
Vocabulary and grammar rules are memorized. It is considered that the grammatical translation method to be
a useful method for learners of all levels of second language learning. Similarly, Damiani (2003) in his study
on the grammatical translation method states that it is the best way to teach grammar and vocabulary and the
teacher believes that his students learn while the teacher in any other method is not sure how students should
learn the language.

Considering grammar-translationmethod in grammar lessons, it should be noted that it must be

known historically and has been widely used in different schools for centuries. If this problem is
methodically exacerbated, then some of the formal-pedagogical tasks of foreign language teaching can be
pointed out, which arose on the basis of traditional language learning of the Renaissance.

The aim of the grammar-translation method is to read and translate using grammatical rules and read

literature. The sentence is the basic unit of learning through this application. Written speaking is central, and
listening and speaking are only means of learning. The main advantages of grammar-translation method are
learning techniques for working with the text: analysis of complex sides of text, grammatical and lexical

search of material, comparison of analogies. The basic principles of the grammar-translation method are: 1)
written language as a training basis; 2) memorize grammar rules and words and compose their sentences; 3)
acquisition of language material with the help of translation and machine memory and using the analogy
based on the mother tongue.

In the case of the grammar translation method, it is important to point out the following positive

aspects: 1. literary works are studied in the original language; 2. grammar is learned in context; 3.
grammatical rules and structures are explained in detail; 4. the mother tongue is a mean of deriving meaning;
5. methods of analysis, comparison and comparison will be used. For each method, there are interesting and
effective ways to work on the language, and it is important that the teacher can continuously improve their
professional level and apply a variety of innovative techniques to optimize the language learning process
organically.

It can also be said that the treatment of grammatical translation with its clear criteria and

methodological training provisions is quite a flexible method, since it varies depending on different
situations, including social ones, and different requirements for both education and learning. The teaching
process and methodology itself and, in general, in order to learn a foreign language. In the 19th century, for
example, the famous linguist W. Humboldt highly valued the grammar-translation method of language
teaching, believing that it provides "vital" knowledge, allows the development of thought and broadens
horizons and the main aim of language teaching was "to provide knowledge of its general structure".

According to grammar-translation method, fluency is the possession of grammar and vocabulary.

Courses according to the grammar-translation method have always ensured a good knowledge of the
linguistic system and the possession of translation situations, but currently they do not provide for a practical
use of languages in the various areas of communication. This circumstance became the reason for
explanations and the method lost part of its position due to the growing interest in methods focused on the
practical domain of languages.

It cannot be ignored that with this method begins the formal study of the structure of the native

language, as the child, mastering the language, memorizes a certain number of words and then replenishes
his vocabulary and knowledge of grammar. Also in foreign language teaching, the student masters various
grammatical schemes of a foreign language based on textual teaching materials in a certain order (or, as we
have seen, due to the scenic nature of the training). Most school curricula consist of such exercises, which
involve the automation of grammatical constructions and the mechanical memorization of learned sentences
and constructions. Of course, learning a foreign language in schools using this method also gives good
results. However, many methodologists, such as Richards, Bills, Kellner, etc., warn of the insufficiency of
using this method to achieve a communicative objective in the classroom. Furthermore, the grammar and
translation method completely ignores the main function of any language - the communication function.

The main exercises of the grammar-translation method are:

1.

Translation from English to the mother tongue and vice versa;

2.

Fill in the gaps;

3.

Make sentences from the words presented;

4.

Looking up for synonyms and antonyms;

5.

The use of deductive grammar rules, that is, first learn, then apply and practice, doing exercises according

to the model;
6.

Essay writing.

After reviewing and analyzing many sources, it is concluded that grammatical skills are the ability of

students to determine and choose appropriate patterns for linguistic situations, and organize them according
to the relevant linguistic standards studies. In other words, speaking of grammar, we can distinguish several
specific actions:

determine and select the appropriate structure with the intention of the statement;

design of linguistic structures to complete the model according to certain parameters and norms of

the language;

Determine and evaluate the accuracy and suitability of the selected model.

As a theoretical review of the literature on scientific methodology shows, during the period of

development of the theory of language and linguistics in the history of language learning, there have been
many contradictory opinions. From the point of view of some researchers, it is important that grammar
training is carried out independently of the implementation of specific training.
