David Petrie - The future of language learning: A case study from 2034

Let me introduce you to a student. Monica is 20 and was born in 2013. She has an older sister and a younger brother and is in the process of doing a degree in Human Resources and Personnel Development. She’s been learning English pretty much all her life, but because she didn’t really pay much attention in school and just did enough to get by she doesn’t feel that confident in her ability. She did an online test that she found and it told her she was B1 level.

David Petrie - To test or not to test?

To Test or Not to Test? That is the Question.

As I write this, a group of young people is sitting before me, heads bent towards their desks. Some are already rubbing their heads, there is some pen chewing going on and one young man is staring out of the window. They are all doing a test. Actually, they’re all doing a practice exam – it’s not even a real test, it’s a test to see if they’re ready to do the real test.
