Teaching Writing through Communicative Approach in Military English
Likaj, Manjola
Journal of Education and Practice, v6 n20 p102-107 2015
The paper speaks about teaching writing through communicative approach in English for Specific Purposes, especially in Military English. There are presented three different approaches regarding writing in ESP: product, process and social-constructionist approach. The recent developments in ESP writing consider the social-constructionist approach as the most appropriate one in making writing communicative. In order to make a writing task as communicative as possible, we should take into consideration the creativity and freedom of the writer to express his ideas openly like he does in his everyday life as well as to meet the expectations of the discourse community to which he addresses. Thus, teachers of military writing have to deal with all formal written texts that military students are assigned to do in their respective jobs. Therefore, military students take writing skill more seriously and become more motivated to communicate their messages through writing and at the same time to enhance their writing skills in a communicative way.
