  • Hi I am an English teacher from Mexico. We are going through a change of methodology teaching. I would like to ask you a favor. Can you share a lesson plan and the evidence in action? It is a bit confusing to understand, teaching reading through competencies in order to achieve the competence of reading. I will be greatful to you.
