Early in the morning we observed accelerated language classes. A seven groups of French, German, and Japanese students, all of them applying drills with Rassias' Method. I observed a French spoken class where learners followed each one the paradigm of drills in the Method. Once again it brought snaping and visual contact between teacher and students out to me. Helen Rassias gave us instructions in order to get the best of all.
