What is

Today's questions:
- How do I personally learn languages?
- What kind of learning history and experiences have I had so far?
- How do I know that I'm progressing?
- What can I do to become a better
language learner?
- What do I need to improve in my English?
- How do I plan my learning?
What Autonomy is
What Autonomy is not
1 - it is not self-instruction without a teacher
2 - it does not forbid intervention or initiative on the part of the teacher
3 - it is not something teachers DO to learners, i.e. not a new method
4 - it is not one single easily identifiable behaviour
5 - it is not a steady state achieved by learners once and for all
The capacity to define,
carry out, and
evaluate learning
How do I do ALMS?
Where am I, and how did I get here?
From here to autonomy
What next?

You are now ready to make your first plan of your work for ALMS. Try to think about what you need to do and how to do it. You should also think about the time you will put into your different projects.

Remember this is simply the first version of your study plan. You may change it after further thought and discussions with your colleagues, teachers and counselors. It is the basis for your ALMS Contract which you will write during the second ALMS meeting.
Group Task.
In your group you are going to discuss what possibilities your text offers for learning
English. What aspects of your English skills could be improved using this text? With
these questions in mind, look through the text, underline/highlight, take notes, etc.

What challenges does it give you in terms of language and/or content? When you are
working with this text, what strategies / techniques can you use in your language /
learning? At the end your group will share their ideas and findings with the class.
