Evaluating

Evaluating is at the core of the autonomous learning process. This term includes the evaluation of learning progress (i.e. what have I learnt?) and of the learning process itself (i.e. how have I learnt?). Evaluating one’s own progress and one’s own language competencies is the hardest part of autonomous language learning. It requires practice and normally exchange with other learners, native speakers, learning advisors and teachers.

Are you satisfied with your evaluation? Would you like to change any aspects of your learning? If so you can go to planning, choosing materials and methods or completing tasks, and make the necessary changes to your learning process. Do you like learning with others? In that case, go to cooperating.
