Discussion Group (203)

Is it a Good Idea to Teach Foreign Languages Using Distance Learning?


Discussion Leader: Marina Parsegova
Affiliation: Mountain Crest High School, Utah

Is it possible to teach foreign languages successfully, especially the less commonly taught ones, over a distance? How can interactive or communicative activities be arranged? What about teaching pronunciation? These questions, as well as other advantages and disadvantages of distant learning, will be discussed, with an eye toward implications for the future.
