Learning French using Colours

The method draws on colour associations to help teach pronunciation; there is a sound-colour chart which is used to teach the language sounds, coloured word charts which are used for work on sentences, and coloured Fidel charts which are used to teach spelling.

The general goal of the Silent Way is to help beginning-level students gain basic fluency in the french language and good pronunciation. The students should be able to express their thoughts, feelings, and needs in the french language.

The method emphasizes learner autonomy and active student participation.
