Recognize the Aspects of the CLT Approach & How to Achieve Them

Communication is an exchange of knowledge, information, ideas, opinions, and feelings among people.

How We Mainly Communicate

We use language to communicate, convey facts and express what we feel about these facts.

Words can convey attitudes, but attitudes can also be conveyed by intonation, gesture, and facial expression.

Meaning can also be conveyed not only through language but also through bodily contact, gestures, head nods, eye movements, and facial expressions.

Using the Communicative Language Teaching (CLT) Approach in Teaching

Teaching using the communicative approach makes use of real-life situations which enhance or necessitate communication.

The teacher should set up a situation that a student might really encounter in real life.

Unlike the audio-lingual approach which deals with repetition and drills, students in the communicative approach are involved in classroom activities that should vary according to their reactions and responses.
