Table of contents Definitions Learner autonomy is a problematic term because it is widely confused with self-instruction. Why learner autonomy? There are two general arguments in favour of trying to make learners autonomous. In the particular case of second and foreign languages there is a third argument.

Literature Project WIKISOURCE Many Books BBC/OU - Family & Child Development - The Family David Edmonds: This is Ethics Bites, with me David Edmonds Nigel Warburton: And me Nigel Warburton David: Ethics Bites is a series of interviews on applied ethics, produced in association with The Open University. Nigel: For more information about Ethics Bites, and about the Open University, go to David: In western countries at least, the traditional family unit, married man and woman, living with their offspring, is breaking down. Partly this is due to fewer people choosing to get married; partly to higher divorce rates; partly also, because technological changes, such as in-vitro-fertilization, have led to more children being raised by an adult or adults with whom they’re not biologically connected. Brenda Almond has written a book about the family, and is a member of the Human Genetics Commission. Nigel Warburton: Brenda Almond, welcome to Ethics Bites. Brenda Almond: Pleased to be here, thanks for inviting me. Nigel: The topic we want to focus on today is the family.

EtextCenter University of Virginia Library > Our Organization > The Electronic Text Center The Electronic Text Center (1992-2007), known to many as “Etext,” served the University community’s teaching and research needs in the areas of humanities text encoding for fifteen years. Many of the resources once available on Etext are now available via VIRGO, the Library’s online catalog and the primary access point for all U.Va. Library digital texts and images. In the course of migrating thousands of texts from Etext to VIRGO, we determined that certain resources were not eligible for inclusion, most often due to copyright issues. If you have questions about the location of older resources, please send your inquiry to Virgo Feedback.

speakingactivities - Welcome to Miguel Prieto's Website These are some speaking activities I’ve been doing with my students at Escuela Oficial de Idiomas de Burgos for some years now. They are intended for students to practice for their speaking performances at their level tests for Escuelas Oficiales de Idiomas. They are topic related and based on New English File Elementary, English File Pre-intermediate and Intermediate That’s English! Modules 7-8-9 . I have included some useful Internet links for students and Thingies I've recently come across in the Net. If you want more useful links for English as a Foreign Language, click for the English Department of the Official Language School in Burgos and Professor Ana Mercado's Web Site Estudiantes: Actividades orales para preparar los exámenes orales de la EOI de Burgos en los niveles que se señalan.
