Ugly ducklings or swans? The magic of NLP in transforming students' certainties

Abstract

The paper suggests that NLP-guided strategies may be one of the possible answers leading students to gain more confidence in their inner resources, practice the language in anxiety-free contexts and emotionally sustaining environments, increase their autonomy and distance from educators, expand their awareness about the target language and the modalities to become successful in its use, experiment with their own ways of perceiving the embedding micro and macro worlds (the class and real life). Improvements in learning contexts and significant changes in methodological and attitudinal realities are not necessarily obtained via sophisticated equipment or expensive tools. They might be achieved using a simple visualization. The only condition is that educators must be willing to put themselves into question as well. Where and when institutionalized contexts are slow to change perspectives, educators might be faster.
