Blinger: Goals and motivation

Blinger: A linguistics & ESL Blog: "I recently posted about a presentation I gave ongoal training which is also part of my approach to building learner autonomy."

Blinger then quotes me (bless him). My partner in crime and I are also coming round (again!) to the importance of goals, as I posted here, here and here (and here). When I first talked about goals in class, it was with the idea of just sharing with them something I was personally interested in; later, it was related to language-learning goals, part of becoming an autonomous language-learner; but now it seems vitally related to the matter of motivation, to their general well-being.
