The Key to Making Progress - S3E6

We all want to make progress in life. Recently, I learned a great nugget of truth from one of my mentors, which summarises the key to making progress in any area. In this episode, I share that nugget of truth with you, and apply it to language learning. Leslie Foster has also just published two courses on setting SMART goals for language learning, and for language teaching. The nugget of truth is embedded as a principle in both of these courses, and I outline for you how those courses are structured, and how they help you make progress in language learning, or assist your learners to make progress in their language learning.

Reflections on 2018

It’s the end of the year, and we’re taking the time out to look back at 2018 and look forward to 2019. Joanna takes us through what has happened at Language Fuel in the last 12 months. We’ve re-designed our online training courses, and re-named them. We no longer have the Language Fuel Academy. Instead, we now have our two Language Fuel Training Libraries. We’ve also continued to serve the New Zealand community with language teaching and learning resources. And we’ve been doing a lot of materials development for language schools. Next year, we’re excited to welcome a new, very experienced team member to help take our ELT Training Library to the next level! She’ll also help out with the podcast going forward. So stay tuned for Season Three, which will be re-focused to become more about English Language Teaching, and will be co-hosted with our newest member of the team. Seasons Greetings to all our Podcast Listeners from the Language Fuel Team.

Have you ever thought of teaching a community language class? The good news is, you don’t have to be perfect to make an impact. In this episode, I reflect on my latest steps in learning Te Reo. I have started attending a local community class for beginners, and it was inspiring to be a part of the class. Tune in to hear what the teacher did right, and be encouraged in your own learning or teaching journey.
