Thank you very much. However, my first- and second-year students have both a course and an exercise book (with plenty of activities) to complete.
The lazy and unmotivated students are those from the fourth and fifth year. They are expected to learn literature. They should be able to write three ten-line paragraphs about specific literature topics (using the correct vocabulary and a wide variety of sentence connectors). They'll be tested on literary topics (orally), too.
Howver, they refuse to memorize either the vocabulary or the phrases (collocations) and if I ask them to repeat them, they reply that repetition is useless and mechanical.
Don't you think that repetition is essential when studying a foreign language????
