Teachers U1 Lesson 1

An interactive Introduction to Language Learning

Welcome to our introductory lesson, which touches upon some basic elements of language learning and highlights their connection with online teaching. You can use this video as a starting point for your online course and share it with your students to encourage them to reflect on language learning and the challenges it presents. 

The video includes third level students’ comments on what they feel are the most challenging aspects of language learning. You can use them to stimulate further discussion either during synchronous sessions or in a forum, a good way of starting to build a sense of community.

The video also includes a number of reflective activities.
