Abstract

Drawing upon observation and interview data, this study aims to investigate classroom interaction in order to critically evaluate the current status of Communicative Language Teaching (CLT) principles and practice, and to explore the factors which may affect teachers’ ability to apply CLT in Bangla Medium Secondary School English language education in Bangladesh. This thesis discusses the education structure, the potential of English language learning, and the problems with CLT in the Bangladesh context. Through a critical review of the literature some of the major features of CLT are explored. The government of Bangladesh has been trying to make practising teachers adopt such an approach to classroom interaction for over a decade. The extent of the adoption of the practice of these CLT principles is considered by analysing and interpreting the data collected from classroom observations and interviews with teachers and students. These findings enable an initial report into the teachers’ attitudes and beliefs about classroom principles and practice in CLT, how materials and activities are deployed in current teaching strategies, and the students’ perceptions of their roles in classes.
