  • 1. 
    CLT is usually characterized as a broad approach to teaching, rather than as a teaching method with a clearly defined set of classroom practices. As such, it is most often defined as a list of general principles or features. One of the most recognized of these lists is David Nunan’s (1991) five features of CLT:
    1. An emphasis on learning to communicate through interaction in the target language.
    2. The introduction of authentic texts into the learning situation.
    3. The provision of opportunities for learners to focus, not only on language but also on the learning process itself.
    4. An enhancement of the learner’s own personal experiences as important contributing elements to classroom learning.
    5. An attempt to link classroom language learning with language activities outside the classroom.
      These are some characteristics of the CLT approach.  WRITE AN SCRIPT FOR AN ACTIVITY IN THE CLASSROOM. EXPLAIN HOW YOUR CLASS FULFILLS ALL THE 5 CHARACTERISTICS GIVEN IN THIS QUESTION.
