Swan, Michael
ELT Journal, v39 n2 p76-87 Apr 1985
Looks at the pedagogical aspects of the communicative approach, especially as it relates to syllabus design and authentic materials. Suggests that language teaching should integrate semantic and formal syllabi and combine authentic with specially written teaching materials. Argues that the communicative approach ignores the importance of the mother tongue in language learning. (SED)
