I realized that if one lays down a solid foundation for your learners they will become self-assured and confident human beings.

I understand how I can assist my learners who need intervention. The BCP will boost the self-esteem and knowledge of weak learners. It definitely helps me to guide my learners, using the correct language applicable to the situation.
