‘Focusing on the pre-selected, or: it’s hard to teach a teacher. [experiences learning Spanish]’ by Willy Cardoso

Willy  Cardoso’ s  blog post is titled “Focusing on the pre-selected, or: it’s hard to teach a teacher. [experiences learning Spanish].”

Willy  Cardoso says, “the teacher had already pre-selected the grammar we were going to focus on, and was ready to show us on the screen tables on how to conjugate the past tenses in Spanish (which was useful). Now, there is nothing super bad about this, in fact, if I were a mere observer in that lesson, I would say it was a very good lesson, and as a student, I can also say it was a good lesson. If, let’s say, this was a CELTA lesson, it would be given a pass, or a good pass (even though there was no drilling of the target language!! ;-) just kidding).”
