The Communicative Language Teaching Approach:
- activities that involve real communication promote learning
- activities in which language is used for carrying out meaningful tasks promote learning
- language that is meaningful to the learner promotes learning
Communicative language teaching uses almost any activity that engages learners in authentic communication particularly:
- functional communication activities: aimed at developing certain language skills and functions, but which involve communication, and
- social interaction activities, such as conversation and discussion sessions, dialogues and role plays
