The new era of education has arrived, and it is here to stay. With the arrival of the new generations, the ways of relating to each other and the expectations towards learning and teaching have changed drastically, if we look some decades back.
Nowadays, when everyone is learning new languages and in a world where languages are an asset extremely valued everywhere, the standards of the learning process have gone way higher.
People born in the XXth century may be used to how languages lessons used to be: a teacher-centered approach where classes used to be a monologue. Classes where the attention revolved around the teacher and students had to adapt to the plans and rhythm of the teacher.
Things are changing now. And not only cause the new generations are demanding new things, but because this old teaching method has proven to be everything but effective. Demotivated students, dissatisfaction when the learning objectives were not reached…but that more and more belongs to the past. No matter if you’re a teacher of French or a student who wants to take a French course in Paris, this subject probably concerns you, so new learning methods may be of interest to you.
