Speaking about a language that enables one to communicate with the entire world, it is the English language that comes to one’s mind. So Drilling and Imitating are the best ways to learn any language. Drilling means listening to a model provided by the teacher or a tape or another student and repeating and it is a technique that has been used in foreign language classroom for many years. There is no need to learn grammar at first. Without more knowledge about grammar the learner can be good at communication skill. Using Choral Repetition is a common method of drilling.
