JOANNE FINE. STUDENT NR: 46108270. LADLANA. ASSIGNMENT 02. 897182 3 QUESTION 11.1) THE COMMUNICATIVE APPROACH TO LANGUAGE TEACHINGAccording to CAPS for English First Additional Language for Grades7 to 9 the communicative approach suggests that when learning a language, a learner should have a great deal of exposure to the target language and many opportunities to practise or produce the language by communicating for social or practical purposes. Language learning should be carried over into the classroom where literacy skills of reading; viewing and writing; and presenting are learned by doing a great deal of reading and learning to write by doing much writing. Real life situations which necessitate communication are used in the communicative approach. This approach was put into place due to the fact that it became clear that traditional methods of learning and applying rules did not result in learners using language effectively. The focus of the communicative approach is to equip learners to use language effectively in everyday situations. Additional language teaching does not focus primarily on the structure of the target language, but instead places emphasis on what can be done with the language (language functions) 1.1.1) IMPLICATIONS FOR PRESENTATION METHODS IN THE CLASSROOMThere are various implications that the communicative approach has on the presentation of an additional language: -Teachers must create situations in which learners are presented with opportunities to really communicate. Group work us of great importance and learner-learner interaction is emphasised -Drilling is no longer deemed an essential activity and pronunciation is only important to the point where people are able to understand each other properly -Learners may make use of their home language to facilitate certain activities and translations may only be used if they have real value. -Learners should be allowed to make mistakes as this is natural when learning a language and teachers should be careful not to correct every mistake as this will lead to a low level of self confidence -If a learner feels that they can attach value to what is being learnt and that they can apply their knowledge to everyday life, their motivation will increase
