ALL ALONG, STUDENTS ARE ENCOURAGED TO ENTER INTO DIALOGUES, FOR ENHANCING THEIR CAPACITY TO EXPRESS THEIR POINT OF VIEW WITH CONFIDENCE AND CONCEPTUAL CLARITY. BESIDES DEALING WITH THE TEACHER, STUDENTS ARE ENCOURAGED TO CONFRONT EACH OTHER TO STIMULATE THEIR LOGICAL AND ARGUMENTATIVE CAPACITIES, AS WELL AS THEIR DIALOGICAL AND EXPRESSIVE SKILLS. TO IMPROVE LEARNING ABILITY, FINALLY, STUDENTS ARE STIMULATED, USING EXAMPLES AND HYPOTHETICAL SITUATIONS, TO TAKE A POSITION, JUSTIFYING IT ACCORDING AND IN VIEW OF ACQUIRED KNOWLEDGE.
