This is however a new area for me, where I may well have done some of these formative assessments before but not realized it. GuyinTaiwan, what strategies do you use to assess student's progress and how do you help them remain (generally) intrinsically motivated?

As such, there's a massive emphasis on speaking (parroting), memorisation, and reading aloud, even if the kids have no idea what it is they're saying and can't use it in any meaningful, and novel, way. I have even heard foreign teachers say that they want their kids to be able to read aloud, even if they don't understand what they're reading. It's absurd and needs to be abandoned.
