The purpose of this paper was to offer an introduction to teachings methods, generally, and post-method condition, specifically, for those who were beginning their studies in this field or whose knowledge of language teaching is tangential. Then it gave a brief overview of different teaching methods and, afterwards, elaborates on post-method condition. Throughout this paper, we will be covering three important characteristics of post method. First we concentrated on the concept of method which was rejected and substituted by another alternative definition. The second characteristic was teacher’s autonomy which put different and new burdens on the shoulders of teachers. The final feature was sense of plausibility in which subjective evaluation of the teacher of himself is highly appreciated and backed.
