To be honest this chapter was a bit confusing with embedded videos. why that they gave less information about students background knowledge specially in the first class from that there are here some questions related, but at least, they could show two teachers with totally different attitude. The most strong point was teacher`s attitude in class 2 and how he could engage students in lesson.I taught languages before, but this was of much benefit to me. Especially the language levels with their European equivalents. A crucial information for me was how age groups students into motivation and participation categories. The post puberty or early teenage group reaches the age of 18, I presume. I would like to dig deeper on this, especially how these categories look in Asian countries.
