Abstract

The idea of communicative competence is one of the most influential theoretical developments in language education as it helps redefine the objectives of second language (L2) instruction. Although most teachers acknowledge the importance of CLT, many do not genuinely practice it. This paper attempts to explore teachers’ reasons or reluctance in using CLT in the classroom. The role of CLT approach in enhancing oral competencies is examined by analyzing the attitudes and beliefs of the teachers. The data is gathered using interview sessions. A range of practical activities is proposed to help language teachers integrate CLT in their lessons.
