Communicative Language Teaching

Research in the field of language teaching and learning emphasizes the importance of providing learners with chances to engage in meaningful communication with others. An effective way to do this is to involve learners in real-life situations and tasks in English.

Communicative language teaching focuses on learners' needs and helps them to:

  • understand and use English in everyday activities
  • carry out routine social interactions
  • develop career-related communication skills

The Role of the Language Teacher

The role of the language teacher is to engage students with scenarios that require them to draw on their knowledge of all aspects of English — its forms and its functions — in order to complete meaningful tasks like those they might encounter in the real world.

To maximize the learning experience, teachers must match learners' needs with applicable classroom activities, such as:

  • reading a job advertisement
  • filling out a job application
  • calling to request repair service for an appliance
  • asking for directions
