Create a Communicative Language Classroom eBook Posted by Transparent Language on May 25, 2016 in For Educators
The communicative classroom, as you may have guessed, revolves around communication.
Why focus on a communicative classroom?
Teachers using this approach strive to simulate real-life situations that motivate and prepare students to communicate meaningfully in a new language. But it takes time and creativity to create a successful communicative classroom, particularly to design a variety of engaging activities and exercises.
Some skills lend themselves to this method, particularly listening and speaking. Even those skills can be made more interactive and engaging with well-planned tasks and assignments. And what about reading and writing? Typically thought of as solitary, both skills can be practiced in a communicative setting with the right activities.
We know how busy teachers are, both in and out of the classroom. Let us take a few things off your to-do list and share some of our ideas with you (because the best teachers are the ones who share, right?!)
In our new free eBook, we’ll walk you through some of our favorite communicative activities for reading, writing, listening, and speaking, tested and perfected by a 20-year language teaching veteran.
