Students' attitudes towards an English language teaching approach play an important role for its implementation success or failure. This study measured Pakistani government school students' attitudes towards Communicative Language Teaching (CLT) and Grammar Translation (GT). A survey instrument was used to assess students' attitudes. Data were collected from students at two government secondary schools located in Quetta, Balochistan, Pakistan. A total of 204 students (102 females and 102 males) participated in this present study. Overall, students showed favorable attitudes towards CLT. In contrast, students showed either less favorable attitudes or a neutral stance towards GT. Finally, this study suggests that policy makers consider adopting or adapting CLT to teach English in the aforementioned schools. Recommendations for future research are also suggested.
