Here are the main ideas of the method.
At the beginning of the training, you create a matrix of 9 dialogues, lasting 1–1.5 minutes.
Dialogues are "live", taken from everyday speech.
This is a "grid" of dialogs with dimension 3x3.
This grid needs to be listened to and spoken out loudly many times.
This is the starting base.
With this base, you are able to understand foreign speech by 20-30%.
Then adjust the number of dialogs to 25 (5x5 grid) or 36 (6x6 grid).
And this is about 60 percent of understanding, ability to speak and free communication.
That is how you create a base matrix.

The pros of the method:
1.You study language naturally.
2.You don't need a teacher.
3.You can do it anywhere.

The cons of the method:
1.You have to listen to the same dialog during 3 hours at least 7 days.
2.Matrix method is only for the initial stage of learning English. After the initial stage you should read English books, listen to audio and video content.
3.Matrix method doesn't teach you grammar.
