2 Transnational dialogue on the Storyline Approach as a learner oriented method for the teaching of a foreign language as a method to solve the problematic transition from Primary- to Secondary language classes

Do I use a wide range of learning activities? Do I challenge learners with differentiated tasks? Do I foster a postitive learning atmosphere?
