A couple of weeks ago, while participating in a languages chat (#charlaele1) on Twitter I saw this tweet:
It was an answer to the question: What advantages does project-based learning (PBL) offer when teaching Spanish as a second language?
I instantly fell in love with her project. Unfortunately, way too often teachers can hear from their students the typical phrase: “–So… what is the point of doing this?“. That’s why PBL is the perfect cure for that kind of statements but this project, in particular, has an outstanding purpose. Sending “get well soon” messages to patients in hospitals.
