Communicative Language Teaching (CLT) is regarded as an approach to language teaching. One of the fundamental principles of CLT is that learners need to engage in meaningful communication to attain communicative fluency in ESL settings. Its primary goal is for learners to develop communicative competence (Hymes, 1971), or simply put, communicative ability. There are numerous challenges to making communicative language teaching happen. These issues have to do with the choice of content, con-text, specific skill areas (e.g., vocabulary, grammar, etc.), and particular learning tasks that determine a curriculum. This study investigates the challenges faced in implementing CLT at a technical college.
