Just Learning
Larsen-Freeman, Diane
Language Teaching, v50 n3 p425-437 Jul 2017
In this "First Person Singular" essay, the author describes her education, teaching experience, and interest in understanding the learning of language. Anyone reading this essay will not be surprised to learn that the author's questions about language learning and optimal teaching methods were only met with further questions, and no definitive answers. She describes the three stages in the development of her career as a teacher: 1) Learning to teach, (2) learning teaching, and (3) just learning. There is no fourth stage--teaching begins with learning, and the learning continues.
