When humanoid robots learn complex sensorimotor abilities from interaction with the environment, often a human experimenter is required. For a social companion robot, it is desirable that the learning can also be assisted by non-expert users. To achieve this aim, we present an embodied dialogue system which enables a humanoid to take on an active role during learning by guiding its user with verbal communication and through the display of emotions. We suggest an experimental setup for evaluating how the active role affects the learning result and the subjective evaluation of the humanoid by human participants.
