Communicative Approach or Communicative Language Teaching (CLT) . CLT had become mainstream by the 1980s and remains the
approach that most syllabuses claim to follow today. CLT sees that the
primary goal of language teaching and learning is communicative competence:
the ability to successfully communicate and understand messages in the
target language. Grammatical accuracy is seen as less important than the
successful communication of meaning. This approach believes that grammatical competence will be acquired through use of the language for communicative purposes.
