Much formal language instruction is passive.  Students basically watch the teacher's show with perhaps some repetition.  There is no respect for student's time and knowledge since the focus is on the teacher's performance; parts of the teacher's show are unnecessary for some and insufficient for others.  Individual participation means almost nothing and progress is not visible.
