In this episode I’m taking the idea of input a little further. Most of us are on board and understand the importance of making input comprehensible for students. But, how can we check that the language is actually being understood by students? Because if they’re not understanding they’re not acquiring. I’ll share tips for checking for understanding and what to do with the info we get.
