Most of Ss are fairly on the same level except a few who have a higher command of English. The ones with higher strength tend to help the weaker ones. It is a motivated team as a whole. Ss are cooperative, friendly and mature. They do their best to follow T instructions and a great rapport between Ss and instructors is established. Turkish is used occasionally amongst Ss for clarification but Ts try to return Ss attention back to speaking English.
