In our language teaching at Pentagon SMA 10, we have a focus on using the Communicative Approach.
What is The Communicative Approach?
When teaching with the Communicative Approach, there is a focus on student interaction in learning activities. The teacher prepares learning activities with an emphasis on ‘real’ meaning, student centered learning and using authentic materials.
1. Communicating Meaning: A focus on communicating real meaning rather than correct grammar and structure.
2. Student Centered Learning: The student explores the topic through activities rather than the teacher standing in front of the class and talking.
3. Authentic Materials: There is a focus on real life situations. Activities are drawn from the students own experiences.
