Class 07 Attitudes to Learning English & the Ought-to Self
Summary: First, we discussed the variety of self-selected readings or viewings you can take notes on for homework. Studying one instead of two materials per class is fine. Second, in pairs you chatted about university activities and the viewing you took notes on. Third, also in pair breakout rooms you used the L2 motivational self system question generator to communicate what you wanted to say about your language learning past and present.
