Hello, Alexander! My question is about the isolation of using your method. Is it possible to use only TA-execises? I've realised that it's appropriate only for developing (for example grammar) skills without explaning new material, drilling and translation execises according to the Traditional method.

Elena, thank you for the question and welcome to the site.

Whether one uses the TA alone or various approaches depends on how she builds the system. Both are possible, I think. Speaking specifically about grammar, the TA can be used for all the stages, in my opinion. Just the stages are different when working with the TA. If it's PPP (Present - Practice -Produce) in the traditional approach, it's identify a problem - develop a rule - apply the rule in the TA. You can write about it in the Creative Grammar Technology section of www.thinking-approach.org website. Please feel free to ask if you've got questions.

It'd also be interesting to have your reflections on the lessons with elements of the TA you've conducted.
