Journal on English Language Teaching, v2 n3 p16-27 Jul-Sep 2012
The concept of globalization has brought dynamism in each aspect of the world. The changes have also touched the field of English language teaching (ELT) throughout the world. Bangladesh is no more far from that transformation. It has already attempted to the innovation of ELT. The country has moved from long term-practiced Grammar Translation Method to Communicative Language Teaching Method for teaching second language, particularly English. But, efforts in the teaching of English language seem relatively lacking and not sufficient while considering the demand of time and motion going on throughout the world. With an extreme urge for the diversity in ELT in Bangladesh, the study will evaluate the real practices of CLT; roles and performances of teachers, and learners in CLT classroom. The current study has therefore been aimed to verify how far those claims of communicative textbook are successful, why the learners still lack in communication in English, what the obstacles are and finally how to remove those barriers. The present study, become a significant one as a systematic step in this case. And it is greatly expected that the proposed research will result useful solutions for the teachers and students to solve the problems in terms of English language teaching and learning by CLT not only in Bangladesh but also in other non-English countries. Language learning can never happen absolutely unless four basic skills are equally emphasized. Schools therefore arrange listening practices with the help of English video games, documentaries, movies etc. Bengali language should be for bidden for the teachers of English as well as for English classes. Reading materials should not be limited within the textbook merely rather the variety of realia should be used as mandatory reading resources. Students should first practice writing by illustrating pictures of real environment and day to day activities what they regularly deal with. The survey study has been carried out in different secondary schools through questionnaires.
