Cooperating

Cooperating is the social and interactive dimension of autonomous language learning. One can learn together with others – complete tasks, speak and discuss, realise a project – but one can also plan and reflect on the individual steps of one’s own learning process.

This isn't important for me

When I hear something in the foreign language I can focus my attention on aspects which interest me particularly (for example, accent, intonation, vocabulary and expressions, or the structure of the text).

     

When I don’t understand something I can ask my interlocutor to speak more slowly, to repeat something or to explain something.

     

I can ask native speakers and competent non-native speakers or other learners to help me (for example, with a formulation or to correct a text).

     

I can practice the language with native speakers, competent non-native speakers, or other learners.

     

I can learn by taking part in or observing a communicaton.

     

I can work with a partner or in a group.

     

When I work together with others I can

     
listen to the others (for example, in order to understand their stance)
     

express my stance

     

compare my stance with the others’

     

where applicable, modify my stance to reach a group decision.

This isn't important for me

I can decide whether it is better for me to complete a task with others, rather than on my own.

     

I can decide whether I want to work with a native speaker to achieve my goal (for example, with a tandem partner).

     

I can recognise when I need to discuss something with a learning advisor.

     

I can talk about my feelings when necessary (for example, with a fellow student or with an advisor).

     

I can decide which steps of the learning process I want to carry out with others (for example, planning, choosing materials and methods, completing tasks, monitoring, evaluating).
