Human beings are different in that we can create anything we want to create. So think of what we can do in our language classes if we just remember that.
Combined with active and aggressive community building (see the attached TikTok), we have in the Phase 1 activities of the StarChart the answer to boring language classes right here in front of us.

It’s only a matter of taking back our power from those around us who demand that we teach according to their texbook-driven lists and other forms of insanity that don’t align with how people actually languages – via comprehensible input. We need but be willing to step out of our comfort zones to go from black and white language instruction to technicolor!
