Communicative Language Teaching (CLT) has become the standard in language teaching approaches. If you ask language teachers what approach they follow they will likely state they follow a communicative approach. However, there are many ways to achieve a communicative classroom. In this presentation, we discuss common myths and misconceptions about CLT and show it is not a “one size fits all” approach, but rather an empirically based and adaptable method that promotes successful language learning.
