HE CAN PROVIDE IMMEDIATE DRILL REINFORCEMENT FOR THE STRUCTURES TAUGHT, LISTENING OPPORTUNITIES AT ALL LEVELS, AND INDIVIDUAL AND GROUP PRACTICE TO HELP STUDENTS REMEDY WEAKNESSES AND PROBLEMS. IN ADDITION, HE CAN PROVIDE VALUABLE HELP TO THE TEACHER WHO MAY WISH TO IMPROVE HIS OWN ORAL MASTERY OF THE TARGET LANGUAGE.
