Communicative approach in English language teaching involves the following ,

- meaning is emphasized over form,fluency over accuracy
- CLT considers needs_based approach because it focused on communicative needs of learner
- It is a learner -centered approach
- CLT is realized by task-based language teaching(TBLT) .In TBLT language lessons are based on learning experiences that has a clear connection between things learners do in class and things learners will ultimately need to do outside of the classroom.
