“Why (Language) Teacher Skills for the 21st Century”
(Language) Teachers face rapidly changing demands from students, parents, management, society, and business. Standardised lessons and rote learning do not suffice to master a language. Advancing technology for more cost-efficient learning is another important driver for change. In order to avoid being labelled, as ‘old school’, language teachers need to be able to adjust and autonomously renew their learning approaches and methodologies for the class room.
