Informal and Formal Approaches to Communicative Language Teaching.
Ellis, Rod
English Language Teaching Journal, v36 n2 p73-81 Jan 1982
Discusses the use of the term "communicative" in describing approaches to foreign- or second-language teaching. Suggests that a distinction should be drawn between informal communicative approaches which promote second-language acquisition and formal communicative approaches which promote conscious learning. Examines conditions for achieving both acquisition and learning in the classroom. (Author/MES)
