Getting students to engage and participate in class has been one of the most common teachers’ struggles throughout the history of teaching languages. Being a language teacher, we know that learning happens in communication and for communication. Hence, speaking and active listening are two pillars of utmost importance if we want to get our students to learn. While I believe that there’s a lot going on at the moment that is out of our control, there are a couple things we can do to better engage students in class. In this webinar, I’m going to describe what I’ve recently come to name as The Dora Explorer Effect and why and how to avoid it.
