What are the agile testing methods? And what are the traditional testing methods?

There are no "Agile Testing Methods" by itself as such but only testing done in an Agile Environment. Even if they exist, you cannot use "Agile Testing Methods" successfully in a waterfall organisation - so you have your concepts a little wrong there.

Anyway to give you some constructive feedback, the testing functions may very well be the same like waterfall, but the following may be different in an Agile Environment:

  1. atmosphere and culture would be more collaborative (more face to face interaction),

  2. tester involvement would be early,

  3. the Team would code to a test, rather than code first and then create a test plan,

  4. you would be cross functional so you may have to write code or do requirements gathering, and you will work closely with the customer,

  5. you would work in 2 - 4 week iterations,

  6. you would continually improve your testing procedures

  7. you will not have a QA/Testing department

  8. your role will be a "Team member who has most Testing experience" rather than "Tester"

Traditional methods are mostly the exact opposites of the check list above, seriously.

I am not shure if there are any "testmethods" that are special to agile.

Of course there is "testdriven" (tdd) and "behaviordriven" (bdd) development but i donot see these as "testing methods".

Unittests are not special to agile or traditional.

As @khachik mentioned it: there is offen a huge difference when (in the develpment process) the tests are desigend and applied.

Traditional = Waterfall or V-Modell: Test are done in the end (if at all)

Agile : Test should be written before the code is written.

what's your interest
