Description This contribution concerns implementation of various tools and strategies to which a teacher might resort in an effort to take some distance from the coursebook and raise awareness of learners’ autonomy in the fields of vocabulary learning, learning attitude and learning strategies. The concept of business news activities, as well as the use of ICT tools such as Quizlet will be introduced and described. Finally, a brief evaluation of the procedures – both from the teacher’s and learners’ points of view – will be offered in view of outlining their possible future modifications.
