Search the forum for L-R method and I believe you will get the original thread.

Total Annihilation Challenge. Started by Reineke. The idea is to push yourself to do more language study than you would otherwise.

I think we urgently need to think about the distinction between "method" "methodology" and "technique" -- there's a reasonably broad concensus in the teaching world over these terms.

A single type of exercise, activity or way of presenting material. Examples include Substitution drills, vocabulary flashcards, Jazz Chants etc.

A full, independent system of language learning, incorporating one or many different techniques.

A proprietary course system incorporating a methodology and specifically designed/selected materials.

This seems to stem from the thread in which you called shadowing a technique. It is multiple types of activities but, by your definition, it can't be called a methodology. Even though it incorporates several techniques it does not intend to be a independent system of language learning.

What do you think Cainntear?

Would it be helpful to have all of this collected in one place as introductory information for those completely new to language learning or who, like me have intermediate knowledge and need help witn say 20% of the terminology? It's very interesting to read what you all have posted, but it feels like it's going to change to a "what does fluency mean?" or "what is the relative efficacy of method X?" thread.
