EFL Learners' Perceptions of Communicative Language Teaching and Learning
doc. Rastislav Metruk, University of Žilina, Slovakia;
Abstract: This paper attempts to explore EFL learners’ perceptions of the fundamental principles of communicative approach, which has been employed as the primary way of teaching foreign languages for the past 50 years. Research participants were formed by Slovak university EFL leaners – teacher trainees, who were asked to demonstrate their level of agreement to statements concerning communicative language teaching by responding to a 5-point Likert scale questionnaire. The calculated means suggest that the students’ perceptions of the selected principles of communicative approach vary from one principle to another, displaying varying levels of agreement. On the basis of the research results, the conclusions are drawn, and several pedagogical implications are discussed.
