:: RT: Self-Directed Language Learning ▶ https://goo.gl/75Zrm9 ◀, Self-directed language learning relies on the student to have acquired learner autonomy. Any student must learn to be independent; the student must learn to learn. In order to achieve this goal the student needs the assistance of a specialist, in this case a language teacher. The role of teachers in self-directed language learning is different from traditional teaching; they are advisors rather than teachers. As advisors the teachers guide the students towards increased autonomy by making them aware of the study process, their strategies and their beliefs on language learning. In this manner, the learners can take control of their studies and adjust them to their own individual needs. | #BrE #BritishEnglish #RP #UK #English #LukesPodcast #Speaking #ESLclassroom #SelfDirectedLearning
