Learning outcomes covered.
Even the simple process of interviewing an older person for a few minutes helps the students to utilise and develop a whole range of verbal and cognitive skills. They have to think beyond the page of questions to clarify what has been said to them, perhaps to ask for a spelling or to ask a supplemental question if they find something intriging all framed in a polite and respectful manner.
