    added motivation and excitement to learning
    learning by interacting with real people
     
    collaborative and cooperative learning
     
    interactions at 4 different levels:
    st-st / t-st / expert-st / st-materials
  • 13. MORE ADVANTAGES
    practice communicative skills
    carrying on a conversation, interviewing, negotiating meaning
    practice social skills

    gain transferable skills relevant to the world of work
    group work, (inter)personal skills, organizational skills
