This training is aimed at foreign
Innovative, yet simple practices are suggested for a more effective teaching/learning process of foreign languages.
The Language and Motivation method can be applied whether it is face-to-face,
online, in private lessons, or in small groups.
Alternative assessment methods
are proposed to encourage and empower students.
Getting to know the Language and Motivation method has been a great surprise for me, as well as a challenge to try out a different way of teaching a foreign language. Sofia Karfi, thank you for this opportunity and for the excellent training in the method. I look forward to applying it.
My participation in the training was a completely constructive experience, which opened new horizons to the adult education methodology that I had not even imagined existed!
During the training I discovered why it is so revolutionary. I started to feel and believe in the method more and more and now I could barely imagine teaching with a different method. Definitely the best teaching/learning method.
