Communicative language teaching in secondary level of Bangladesh: teachers' and learners' perspective
MetadataShow full item record
Learning depends upon the teacher and the method that he/she implements. The overall teaching procedure involves both the teacher's competence and the method which he/she applies. Communicative Language Teaching, one of the most modern teaching methods, is now practiced in classrooms worldwide. Even in our country this method of teaching is practiced and used by the Education Board in its curriculum and reflected in the book. The aim of this study is to find out teachers' and learners' perspective towards CLT in Bangladesh. Moreover, I want to explore whether this popular method is feasible to teach in our context. In order to conduct this research I have taken interviews of ten English Language teachers of secondary level from different schools and also ten secondary level learners. I have interviewed the teachers and students through two different questionnaires. The findings showed that both teachers and students had positive perceptions towards CLT method. This study also hypothesizes that Communicative language teaching can be feasible to teach in our context through trained the teachers and raising awareness among them.
