While we know the benefits of language learning advising, not all learners have access to an advisor. Bringing the advising approach into the classroom is one solution. The presenter will share a series of activities carried out in a class of 27 first-year university students in order to help learners develop learning habits. Activities included individual work out of class, weekly self-reflections, peer-to-peer reflective dialogues, and a final reflection. Results showed every student developing regular habits for studying English on their own time. Transcriptions of the dialogues reveal the social processes that gave rise to learner agency and self-regulation.
