The Dictyon Method Contact Us

Dictyon instructors have taught more than 80 languages at all levels (beginner-advanced) and foci (listening, speaking, reading, writing) to students of diverse backgrounds (government employees, military officers, private sector with or without previous language learning experiences) and with different learning styles. In doing so, they have combined proven with innovative instructional methods, conventional materials with state-of-the-art multimedia. Their continuous hands-on educational involvement has crystallized into the methodology that works most effectively in the classroom. Today we are proud to present Dictyon’s value package of powerful tools and methods.

Material Selection
Textbooks, readings, and audiovisual materials are selected keeping in mind
• class objective/student target level
• exposing student to topics most needed for class objectives

Vocabulary
Goal: 30 new words per day
Using powerful vocabulary building tools, the student can review unknown words, listen to their instructor pronouncing the vocabulary, use memory devices, practice spelling, compare their own pronunciation against the native speaker’s, generate multiple choice quizzes, and monitor their own progress. Vocabulary acquisition is consolidated by

  1. using new vocabulary in essays, presentations recognizing it in audio clips;
  2. creating memory devices; and
  3. taking regular quizzes comprehensive interim and final tests;

At end of course, student is guaranteed to own a certain number of new words. Depending on course duration, this count varies from a few hundred to about 4,000 for full-year courses.

The advantages of the Dictyon method is that it makes student progress

  • measurable (# of new words/day or week), therefore,
  • predictable (goal set in the beginning, corrective steps taken during course if need be), and
  • manageable (pace can be adjusted to student needs and capabilities).
