- Cooperative Learning: Students are encouraged to construct meaning through genuine linguistic interaction with others.
- Classroom goals are focused on all of the components, including grammatical, discourse, functional, sociolinguistic and strategic (Brown, 2001). However, communicative competence, above all, is of pivotal importance.
- Autonomous Learning: The students are encouraged to develop enough metacognition strategies in their own learning process. They are given abundant opportunities to employ apt strategies in harmony with their own styles.
- The role of the teacher is that of facilitator and guide. He turns out to be an enabler, mediator, intervener, counselor and motivator in the classroom.
