This book is for anyone aspiring to teach a foreign language following Caleb Gattegno's approach called The Silent Way. While Gattegno and others have written several excellent books describing the principles underlying the approach, there is nothing quite so helpful to new teachers as a visit to a classroom where someone is actually using the Silent Way.

This book is an attempt to meet that need. It invites the reader to peek over the shoulders of two experienced Silent Way teachers as they work day by day with complete beginners in English and Spanish.

As Caleb Gattegno says in the Foreword to Discovering the Silent Way, "Here we have two practitioners, exposing themselves candidly to their readers and telling of their trepidations and
mistakes, sure that these have been as much of value in their evolution as teachers as they could be to their readers and who feel at the same time that they have exciting stories to tell."
