Abstract

In teaching a second or foreign language, a communicative approach is more effective that a grammar approach based on drills and practice. Many activities for developing oral and listening communication in English are available in books, journals, and other sources. When it comes to writing instructions, it is difficult to find activities based on meaningful exchanges of ideas and experiences. Too often writing activities in ESL/EFL texts are drills with only one correct answer or simple formulas. The lack of personal involvement in writing exercises does not promote real learning.
