My advanced level learner is returning to the basic learning strategy.
Ben and Mandy often discuss how to further improve his language skills in class. He used to accumulate new words and even practiced handwriting through the mobile app for years. However after he set set a TOCFL language test goal for himself recently, I feel like new living water is injecting into his learning. During class, he excitedly shared with me his latest new strategy, going back to practice writing on workbooks, using the paper flash cards, and he apparently is acquiring strength through those basic strategy again. Indeed, there is no one-size-fits-all learning strategy, neither language level, learning habits, personal needs, or even the language itself is constantly changing. As a teacher, I can participate my student’s journey of discovery, isn't it also the living water of teaching?
