They are concerned with the hypothetical and the future and create hypothesis that they test. They benefit from hands-on-tasks and teachers focus is on the process rather than the product.

The Scenery The reviews are in... The classroom environment should be a safe place where students can explore the many issues that concern each of them and allow them to act out scenarios that might in turn, help them to deal with the many day to day issues that the intermediate learner faces! For example, role playing peer pressure situations such as trying drugs, helps to provide the students with some ideas as to how they might handle this type of situation in real life!
