Why are the internal arts taught this way?

Partly it may cultural.
It may be that the internal arts are more sophisticated than your typical martial art.
A militaristic, routine method of teaching may not work so well.

In a Japanese art the student is encouraged to replicate the teachings of the art perfectly.
Like a carbon copy.

The internal arts encourage students to find their own way, recognising that some lessons simply cannot be taught.
