Social situation

The Communicative Language Teaching Approach I decided to draw a ship because the reading emphasized that students should not perceive language as a simple object and it is actually a vehicle for communication as we can see here the teacher is represented by a cloud because according to this method the teacher is not the center but facilitates the learning process, the main feature that this method have is that it promotes the meaningful learning, it provides different contexts so the student can handle the language under different situation throughout activities which permit students to interact between them and make an intent to

communicate, in the same way , the students must be provided with a cultural aspects which is very related to the meaningful learning because the students have to know when and where to use certain style or way to say their speech this aspects refer to function and meaning which are very important to master the target language, this is why the ship is strictly connected to these concepts and they cannot be separated , this approach covers all the micro and macro skills so if the ship (learning process LCT ) is ready to part it should have the requisites to handle the skills which complement this method that is why I draw them as a complement which is the water to the ship.
