“Languages can’t be taught. They can only be learned”
This is the conclusion that Luca Lampariello reached after learning foreign languages for more than 20 years. He has attained fluency in 12: Italian (his mother tongue), English, French, German, Spanish, Swedish, Russian, Dutch, Portuguese, Japanese,Polish and Mandarin Chinese.
If Luca’s statement is true, what implications does it have for language teachers and students? If we follow Luca’s approach, can we learn two, three, or even more languages to fluency?
Luca joins us to share his experiences as a language learner and full-time online language coach.
In this webinar, he will address the following questions:
- What is the difference between a language coach and a language teacher?
- Can language coaching be combined with language teaching?
- What specific activities can teachers do with their students to enable them to become more effective and independent language learners?
- What do you know about language learning and teaching now that you wish you had known when you first started?
Luca will discuss how to develop a solid language core to go further into a foreign language and how taking control of the learning process is key. He will share strategies teachers can implement to help learners find, create, and use language learning materials according to their tastes.
