fionaljp 2019-01-23T19:06:02 @Marisa_C Hello Marisa #ELTchat
Marisa_C 2019-01-23T19:06:13 #ELTchat Some Ts may think that adults find it easier to act autonomously and take charge of their language learning - what do you think?

Marisa_C 2019-01-23T19:11:18 @fionaljp @AlexanderLDiaz good point - unmotivated Ss are not going to go out of their way right? #eltchat
