The Flipped Class

You might be thinking, "What is a flipped class?". One way to describe it would be to call it a non traditional teaching method. Curious? Keep reading.

Fantastic idea, I hope I can try it out myself in a few months.

I think this is the method most (all) of the distant learning programs use. I myself have finished my final school exam (Fachabitur) via distant learning (Telekolleg II) in 1998 and it was 100% this method (video lessons via telly, units to read and exercises to send to the teacher - then every 2-3 weeks a normal school day, where we asked questions, got the homework corrected etc.). The program was established 1967 - other distant learning programs long before (Australian School of the Air) - and so it is actually an old hat. 

BUT it is the best form of learning I ever came across. And so I am now learning languages (by myself) this way and only ask italki teacher to fill in the blanks (for example to practise the grammar instead of explaining it - to practise pronunciation rather than introducing vocabulary). The problem very often is, that old fashion teachers do not understand, what I want and even some tutors tried to spend time on explaining rather than practising with me. I now found a good teacher and wonderful tutors but it took me some time.

SO - THANK YOU for writing this article and making the method more public.
