?Text 7. LEARNING BY TEACHING AT THE UNIVERSITY1. What's the best way to motivate listless, uninterested students? Simply turn them into teachers! The technique practiced at several schools and universities, most notably at St. John's College in Annapolis, USA, and at more and more grammar schools in Germany, is called Learning by Teaching; it requires a radical shift in the traditional roles of teacher and learner. The results are overwhelmingly positive,especially in the field of foreign-language instructions. 2. Learning by teaching is by no means an exclusively modern didactic method. Seneca wrote 2,000 years .ago: "Docendo discimus" (We learn by teaching). At St. John's College students teach each other philosophy and physics, ancient Greek and the integral calculus by using the "Great Books" - the original works of Euclid, Shakespeare, Newton, and Freud. There are no textbooks
