All Ss except one are male and all are adults in the approximate age range 20 – 45 years old. They have none or very little formal English training and the general level of English is elementary. Some are stronger than others and will always call out in class, while a few won’t actively participate in individual activities unless pushed. Most of them know each other already from the work environment.|
