Celce-Murcia, Marianne; And Others
TESOL Quarterly, v31 n1 p141-52 Spr 1997
Distinguishes two approaches to teaching speaking skills: (1) a "direct approach" in which new linguistic information is practiced explicitly; (2) and an "indirect approach", involving creating situations that lead learners to acquire communicative skills. Argues that a significant shift is occurring in the second approach and raises questions regarding communicative language teaching. (63 references) (Author/CK)
