959. Aware of their learning strategies




Here I am again, to tell you about the dialogs I’ve heard from the two teachers: One day teacher of English B said to teacher of English A, “We teachers should be aware of good students’ attitude to learning a foreign (or a second) language. Those high-achieving learners have learning strategies which they are aware of. 


They apply those strategies and then they observe that those strategies produce positive grades; so they keep on using and improving those learning strategies and get along – so to speak – with the school subject of English. 


And what is more, they can talk in English in the classroom and write their thoughts when required by an activity in their course books. They can express their ideas and this makes them feel satisfied. 


I could tell you some examples from real students I teach and have taught.” / Photo from: annarbor com. south african kids playing soccer (or football)
