  1. Hi, I am from Mexico, I am studying a MD, and my topic is Learner`s autonomy in English classes. Until now, I found Lizzie, who has very good topics about autonomy. I would like to ask her some things. Is there a place where I can write her? I will appreciate it.

  2. Hi Lizzie it is a pleasure to meet you. Well, I am researching how can I develop autonomy in my english student`s class. the problem is that I have a program to follow, as well as a book. The book has a lot of lessons to answer, therefore I do not have time to do fun activities. I have been recording myself as a teacher, and I am very conductism, I always tell students what to do and they expect me to give them information. The most complicated thing is to make them speak in english. I have 5 groups in the morning. There are 45 students in each classroom. Most of the time I ask them to get together in teams so I monitore them looking at their work. I correct their mistakes or errors, but I tried to ask them so they can deduce the answer. there are many students who do not have enough level, but I can not wait for them, because class only lasts 45 minutes. We see each other 4 times a week. They are in level 4, preintermediate. I have been with them for one year. I am afraid that all the things I taught hem aren`t enough.
    I know different kinds of activities, but again, timming is my problem, and I cannot help each of them.
    Thank you for answering.
