The primary aim of establishing the Activity Room is to enable students to learn independently choosing from among different resources that are available. Students have access to resources ranging from worksheet exercises with answer keys to computer software for language learning.  The importance of  this style of learning is that students, especially in language learning, learn better if they have a say in how they learn.

“Language teaching that does not cope satisfactorily with the problem of independence training is simply a sad waste of time, no matter what else gets done well in the classroom.” (Allright 1979)
