Deductive v Inductive Learning

Deductive Learning

An approach to learning in which students are first taught the rules and given all the information they need about the language. Then they use these rules in language activities.

Inductive Learning

An approach to learning in which students are not first taught the rules of grammar. They work out the rules for themselves by using the language.
