We Teach Languages Episode 50: What do students learn when they learn language?

In ep 50, Stacey asks 'Besides proficiency in the language, what do you want your students to learn in your language classroom?"

The answers Stacey recorded reflect teachers' diverse perspectives and fall within the scope of existing research on what students learn when they study a language.
