عنوان مقاله [English]
In educating German as a foreign language, teaching and learning the grammar has always been considered as one of the most important and difficult parts, and therefore, finding a suitable teaching method can play an important role in better achievements of language learners. For many years, teaching German language to non-Germans has been studied from different perspectives. One of the approaches in evaluating the different methods of teaching German language is to consider the centrality of educator or student. This survey concerns a comparative study of two methods of teaching German grammar, namely teacher-centered and student-centered methods, and seeks to answer the question of, whether using one of the two teaching methods can alone result in a better learning of the linguistic structures, or integrating and combining them would lead to better achievements for the German language learners. A survey of the results of different studies and the analysis of statistical outcomes of the polls obtained from a number of German language learners shows that due to weak and strong points in both the methods, the best outcome in teaching grammar would be reached when the instructor would utilize both the teacher-centered and the student-centered methods, parallel to each other.
