The Communicative Language Ability (also called Communicative competence)

It is a goal in ELT.
We use it to communicate ideas, opinions, etc. (needs)
To acquire, develop, and apply knowledge.
To think and solve problems, etc.

There are five competences of CLA (Communicative Language Ability).
Where should be the focus on: form or meaning?
Should be the content determined by the learner?
Give us your opinion as a teacher...
Should be a negotiation of meaning between the speakers?
Should be the communicative classroom: teacher-centred or student-centred?
How would you organize your class in order to engage your students? and why?
How would you start a lesson in order to decrease the affective filter?
The Communicative approach to language teaching says that Communicative Language Ability is the goal of classroom learning and Communicative Practice must be part of the process.
