Apr 6, 2019


We interview our guest, Richard Robin, professor of Russian at George Washington university and the author of the famous textbook Golosa.

Tune in as the podcast host Dr. Natalie McCauley and her guest discuss a number of topics related to language teaching and testing, such as:
  • strategies to cultivate learner autonomy,
  • when plagiarism and cheating can be good for language learning,
  • five-minute declension quizzes and the reasons Professor Robin believes in learner-centered homework, not learner- centered classroom;
  • using ACTFL guidelines and OPIs for teaching and testing;
  • effective test-taking strategies and what one needs to do to achieve Superior or Distinguished level of proficiency,
    and many others.
We hope you will enjoy this interview with Professor Richard Robin!
