Nowadays being a teacher is impossible without being a reflective practitioner. This means that the system of higher education in teacher-training universities should be aimed at both achieving educational goals and developing students’ reflection. In this paper we describe a methodology that has been created to improve students’ ability to reflect that results in their speaking skills development.
