Four articles on fostering communicative competence in the English as a second language classroom are presented. In "Communicative Competence as an Emphasis in Language Teaching," Alan Kerr examines the subject at a theoretical level and looks at some implications for the classroom. In "Communicative Competence, or 'Who Speaks What Language to Whom and on What Occasion?'" Jean Hunt discusses ways of forging links between performance at the manipulation level and at the communication level. The matter of communication between the school and the non-English-speaking parent is treated in "Introduction to School; An English Language experiment in Co-operation between the School and the Community" by Noel Simpson, Jan Wallbridge, and Kath Richter. "Practical Exercises for Fostering Communicative Competence in Adult Learners of English" by Dorothy Brown and Janet Holmes pays particular attention to the formulation and questions. Finally, Thelma Grant offers "Some Notes on Visits to Language Centres in the United Kingdom." (JB)
