Part 3: Guiding Principles of Online Language Learning
Is online language learning really all that different from learning a language in the classroom? In her third webinar, Donna Marqués addresses this question head on. We all know that the online learning environment is different from a traditional setting, but we sometimes forget that the desired results are the same. Classroom teachers strive to make sure their students become proficient in reading, writing, listening, and speaking. They want their students to feel comfortable using the target language, to be culturally competent, and to believe in the importance of expanding their horizons. Teachers in an online setting have the same goals and are working toward the same outcomes.
