The topic of my dissertation is "Communicative Language Teaching: Teachers' Perception in Bangladesh at the Secondary Level." CLT has been a popular and much practiced methodology in classrooms worldwide for sometime now. Even our National Board of Education has incorporated CLT in its curriculum. The purpose of my research was to examine teachers' attitude towards Communicative Language Teaching in Bangladesh at secondary level. The data for this study was collected through interviews of nineteen high school English teachers who have been teaching English in rural and urban areas. The interviews were taken from 5th July, 2008 to 25th July, 2008 and data was analyzed qualitatively. The overall findings of the interviews showed that there have been some positive and negative opinions and attitude towards Communicative Language Teaching. I asked them some theoretical questions to know about their perception of this approach. This study will also hypothesize that raising English teachers' awareness is likely to help them to teach Communicative Language Teaching in the classroom properly.
