Abstract

This study explores the communicative approach to the teaching of foreign languages. It also examines the motivational implications of the approach. The perceived ineffectiveness of earlier methods of language teaching paved way for the development of communicative language teaching method. The approach lay emphasis on communication as an ultimate goal and process of second language learning and teaching. The communicative activities that engender acquisition of skills in speaking and listening are engaged in by the learners through spontaneous guidance by the teacher, and under an autonomous atmosphere. This approach makes the learner to be self-motivated and more effective in the learning of the foreign language, thus making teaching easier.
