      I remember listening to a podcast episode (Bill VanPatten’s) in which him, his co-hosts and callers (who are usually teachers) were discussing the best term to use instead of “teacher” in the world of language instruction. I thought that was interesting and it speaks to the idea of object language rather than language subject, and how teaching a language is different than teaching math or history. The role is indeed of more of a facilitator, and I agree with the list in this unit of how to support active learning, rather than simply lecture. One note though, at more beginner levels of language use (to not call it “proficiency”!) the learner rarely knows how they prefer to learn, so perhaps more guidance from the instructor is necessary. Any thoughts?
