Questions and Answers
  • 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.

    Correct Answer(s)
    A. The introduction of authentic texts into the learning situation.
    D. An attempt to link classroom language learning with language activities outside the classroom.
    Explanation
    The CLT approach includes the introduction of authentic texts into the learning situation, which means using real-life materials such as newspaper articles or videos to expose students to authentic language use. This helps students develop their language skills in a more realistic and meaningful context. Additionally, the CLT approach aims to link classroom language learning with language activities outside the classroom. This means encouraging students to use the language they learn in real-life situations outside of the classroom, such as through interactions with native speakers or by engaging with authentic language materials outside of class.

    In this activity, the students take the role of teachers.

    Correct Answer(s)
    Learning by teaching
    Explanation
    Learning by teaching is a pedagogical approach where students take on the role of teachers. This method encourages students to actively engage in their learning by teaching others. By explaining concepts and guiding their peers, students deepen their understanding of the subject matter. Teaching also requires students to organize their thoughts, communicate effectively, and develop critical thinking skills. This approach promotes active learning and helps students become more confident and proficient in the subject matter.

    In this activity, I give them reading with spaces that have words missing. Then they listen to real listening, video, and complete the missing words.

    Correct Answer(s)
    Information gap
    Explanation
    The given answer "Information gap" is the correct answer because the activity described involves providing the students with a reading passage that has missing words, creating a gap in the information.

It involves not only linguistic knowledge but also sociocultural knowledge and the ability to appropriately use language in different social situations.
