Marisa_C 12:10 PM @theteacherjames That's a good one James - I thought I was more important too (than the Ss) someone should have rung a bell #ELTChat

cherrymp 12:12 PM @PJC48 but to make the students believe that is in deed a feet. #eltchat
theteacherjames 12:12 PM @Marisa_C I was so preoccupied in planning with "first I'll do this, then I'll do that". Who cares about me, what about them? ;-) #ELTChat

JoHart 12:59 PM @cherrymp @dreadnought001 #ELTchat It may but don;t think it automatically does - ime it leads to "conscious competence" ie less "fluent"
