Class description: Students (ages 10-11) have been studying English for four years, showing various degrees of proficiency level. They are very curious, (especially about dinosaurs) energetic and enthusiastic, but there is a significant mismatch of focus level among them. Sometimes the noise level becomes very high. A few students come from a low socio-economic background and anxiety makes them unreceptive to language input. Two students have special needs; one of them is very reluctant to cooperate and refuses to take notes. The other one has behavioural problems; he often becomes disruptive and annoys his colleagues. Both students have a very low proficiency level and are regularly offered individualised instruction by the learning support teacher and by the school psychologist.
