In this method, the teacher is the sole provider of knowledge and the students are passive recipients. This approach does not encourage active engagement, critical thinking, or collaboration among students. In contrast, interactive teaching strategies, catering to multiple intelligences, and using puzzles and games promote student-centered learning and the teacher's role as a facilitator of learning.

In oral examinations, students are often more concerned about their own performance and may not pay full attention to what others are saying.
