Title: The myth of the Communicative Approach. [abstract].
Authors: Díaz, Javier
Keywords: research
Issue Date: 2006
Abstract: The paper compares the application of the 'Communicative Approach' in the teaching of Spanish as a Second Language in South Australia: different groups, at different levels of proficiency, in different language institutions, all of them claiming to be 'communicative' through the implementation of the Terrell textbook "Dos Mundos", are explored and compared. The paper concludes that the term 'communicative' may be currently overrated and overused among the 2L Teaching community, and deals with some different alternatives for the future.
