Today’s students, find themselves in a very different cultural context from that of many years ago. Firstly, today’s students have more tools at their disposal to learn new concepts in a more effective and dynamic way, thus leaving behind the old traditional teaching methods, which are now considered obsolete. The current context, as well as the global events that have affected the population in recent years, have led to a greater digitisation of teaching methods, paving the way for interactive lessons and the use of new technologies for learning new concepts.
DL: the real revolution to old teaching methods
The real revolution in what is the old method of learning a new foreign language, however, came with the arrival of DL, also known as distance learning. This new teaching method has as its main medium the use of the Internet and all the tools connected to it, such as computers. Thanks to the use of these tools, each student has the opportunity to learn a new foreign language in a dynamic and completely interactive manner, with the possibility of being able to obtain extremely interesting multimedia content from the teacher.
What are the elements on which DL is based?
As already mentioned, DL involves the use of not only technological, but also multimedia tools: these are organised by the teacher in such a way as to stimulate the student’s mind and activity as much as possible. In this way, each student has the opportunity to learn a new foreign language through the use of multimedia content such as images, audio content, videos or online lessons. All this is also helping to make the learner more autonomous and for these reasons, it is a novelty that is destined to become increasingly successful and evolve.
