What I Learned from Being a Beginning Language Student Again
Underwood, Jan
ORTESOL Journal, v30 p1-4 2013
A 20-year veteran teacher of college Spanish, the author decided to take an intensive First-Year German course during one summer. The author found the German class was not only a great opportunity to acquire another language, but a rich source of insight about the language teaching and the learning process itself. Not only did she take German notes, she also filled a notebook with observations about this process, some of which affirmed what she had already knew, and some of which have altered the way she taught. In this article she describes some of these insights.
