I’m so happy about having found this article! It tells you so many things I’ve discovered in life and tried to facilitate learning in class! Please, read. It will help you see what I mean when I urge you to destroy Exam Culture by developing curiosity, improving your self-assessment, and developing a more positive approach to learning, more connected to learning about yourselves and others, through language, developing habits that will bring enjoyment and lifelong learning. This is why our C1 course (state-run education for adults in Spain) is all about transformative, collaborative & meaningful learning on top of being communicative learning of course.
