About the talk

Not long ago, drills went from heaven (in the audio-lingual methods) to hell (according to the communicative approach). However, language learning theories, and reality itself, have come to their rescue and drills are not so tacky any longer. We’ll see examples and experiment with ways to make more mechanical practices relevant, communicative and even personal. Drills can be fashionable again.
