logo new #2Listen to and download these podcasts from the iTunes Store here, our Soundcloud channel here or from this section of the blog.

This is the second in our The TEFL Show podcasts series. In it we continue our discussion about effective language learners and, among other things, talk about:

  • the importance of comprehensible input
  • silent period
  • language immersion
  • noticing and imitating new language
  • role of motivation
  • encouraging students to use the target language in class

You might want to listen to the previous podcast first as the discussion here builds on the issues we talked about in the first podcast. You can listen to it here.

If you’re interested in learning languages, you might find this section of our blog interesting. It contains several articles about issues related to effective language learning.

And as usual, we’d love to hear what you think, so feel free to comment below or send us a message here.
