Students' stories = Engaging, Learning opportunities

If the title got you hooked, I'm sure you're gonna read to the end. One dilemma most English teachers face is getting students to write any kind of text, in the traditional school context. Look what I cooked up for all of you to work around that obstacle.

A student of yours tells you they have not seen any of the last messages you send to the group because their phone went dead. That was ten days ago. Since then, they have been reachable only by land line or e-mail (that is, when they access a computer).

English is available in the form of social media and free websites, TV series and more, yet efforts to achieve higher levels of proficiency are like stops in the ocean. The questions above point to the role of self motivation and self awareness, rather than stressing the methodology, the material or the duration of study. Setting realistic goals in language learning has never been more paramount for us to keep learning bit by bit, level by level. After all, you can enjoy your trip, but only truly learn from a journey.
