  • Communicative Approach

    We use the communicative approach in all our lessons. This method focuses on language as a medium of communication and recognises that all communication has a social purpose. The communicative approach gives emphasis on helping the students use a new language in different contexts. The focus is on functional/usable language. Students are encouraged to produce sentences that make sense, rather than grammatically correct and well-pronounced sentences.

    Five features of the Communicative Approach:
    - An emphasis on learning to communicate through interaction in the target language
    - Introducing authentic texts in the learning situation
    - Focus not only on the language, but also on the learning process
    - An enhancement of the learner’s own personal experiences as important contributing elements to classroom learning
    - An attempt to link the classroom language learning with language activities outside the classroom

    Example Activities
    - Role play
    - Interviews
    - Information gap games
    - Board games
    - Pair work
    - Learning by teaching
    - Surveys
