Abstract

The development and implementation of effective second language teaching approaches for English as second language learners continues to receive increased attention in education research. This qualitative case study examined the role of communicative language teaching (CLT) in acquiring English as a second language and aims to provide an outlook on English second language learners' views on perceived communicative teaching approaches; self-reported language improvement in reading, writing, speaking and listening; and forms of feedback preference. The findings of the study point to communicative language teaching approaches that are perceived to be valuable in developing English second language acquisition and confirm the significance of implementing CLT in English in second language training programs to facilitate learners to develop communicative competence.
