Learning a new language is difficult. While teachers often provide their learners with an abundance of knowledge about the language and opportunities for practice, they often overlook the importance of teaching their learners how to learn a language. Strategy instruction and heightened metacognitive awareness helps students to get to know themselves better as learners, and builds confidence in their ability to succeed. This presentation stresses the importance of incorporating learner training into the English language learning curriculum. The presenter will address benefits as well as strategies for integrating effective learner training into the language classroom.
