The Martin-Reception

Martins Work has been largely received in teacher training and by practicing teachers: since 1985 more than 100 teacher students in all subjects wrote their ending thesis about LdL. Also the education administration received both the theory and the practice of LdL. On the contrary, even if LdL was quoted in didactics handbooks (in the handbook for didactics French teaching as foreign language, 2006, LdL was described as "extreme form of learner centered teaching"), a deep reflection about the Martin method didn't take place in sciences like pedagogic's and didactics.
