  Article:   POSTMODERNISM AND THE POSTMETHOD CONDITION.

Authors:  ALINA PREDA.
 
       
         
  Abstract:  We live in postmodern times and the conventional concepts used in language teaching up to now are no longer functional and need to be replaced in order to ensure the efficiency of the teaching/learning process. The utopic idea of an autotelic method, suitable for all teaching situations, is counterproductive and needs to be abandoned. Therefore, any method or strategy is to be seen as a starting point and a guiding line in our teaching, not as a monolith one cannot step away from if our working conditions, our beliefs or our experience require it. It is to be adapted to the specific circumstances we work in, as this is the only way that can guarantee its efficiency. The purpose of this paper is to prove the existence of the postmethod condition and to establish whether it undermines or integrates the traditional and the modern methods, and whether we shall attach to its rise some radical restructuring tendency.
