Dr Agata Sowińska writes in her blog 'International Dalton Consultancy' :
My new article about the unconventional teaching English, in which I explain that constant teaching secondary school pupil grammar and vocabulary, in order to prepare to exams is not teaching language in itself, but exam procedures. What to do to enrich secondary school English teaching and learning? How to motivate students to learn foreign languages and finally how to increase creativity and sensitize pupil to the global problems? In my article I try to present and analyze the possibilities and give a proposal to unconventional English teaching and learning.
The article was published in Warsaw School of Applied Linguistics one week ago in the volume "Neofilology for the future" (page 97-108)
