  • Provide opportunities for learners to engage in research and observation tasks.
  • Make use of authentic materials as much as possible.

This approach ensures the entirety of the course is of direct, personal relevance to each individual learner and their real world needs. To a large extent, materials have been custom designed using authentic texts.
