How much do your learners take in of your lessons? How do you know?
It’s claimed revisiting the new words and grammar is an essential part of learning, so teachers are often advised to recycle target language little and often. Course material may even provide ways to do this. But how can we extend this work to make it more autonomous, and encourage learners to review and revise what they studied in lessons themselves to make the language stick?
Watch our latest blog post to learn five ways we can encourage our learners to revise and review language.
Please let us know how you get on with Ruben’s latest tips, and if you have others you think should be added to the list, in the comments or via our social media. We would love to hear about your related experiences of refreshing and revising language, both as a student yourself and with your learners.
