An Overview of Approaches to English Language Teaching

Abstract

The present article reviews several approaches to teaching the English language that many English teachers may have embraced in their teaching praxis. It looks at communicative language teaching (CLT), task-based language teaching (TBLT), content and language integrated learning (CLIL), content based instruction (CBI), and post-method approaches. Although critics over particular teaching approach exist along with the description of their advantages, the fact that English language learners aspire to develop their proficiency level remains crucial, and this is where English language teachers play a key role.
