Do they really know about language learning? Are they qualified in this educational field? Do they have credentials to give an informed judgement? Are they making LOTS of money by keeping things exactly the same as 50 years ago – nice and easy for everyone, but resulting in no learning for anyone.   A Conversation with Someone who Disagrees (iv)   …
