Communicative Process in Syllabus

From the time when grammar-translation courses prevailed, through audio lingual on in to the cognitive-code period, practice material has emphasized mechanical & analytical processes. The recent communicative period has expanded this storehouse to include more global, cognitive, & artistic activities. Global activities are directed at overall language use than at discrete elements; cognitive activities either prepare learners for or stress intellectual aims; creative practises give learner the widest feasible opportunity to make use of language for self-expression. Plenty of of the global, cognitive , & artistic activities that have become associated with communicative language courses have been drawn from other fields, the social sciences where group interaction techniques have come in for special attention within the past decade.
The list of practice types or workout introduced in four.2.1 is meant to be open-ended. Work planners & materials writers must create familiarity with the widest feasible range, always looking out for ways to extend, combine, & innovate workouts. Further, they must be able to evaluate the suitability of a specific type for a specific aim. Moving toward establishing criteria for assessing workouts scales are introduced in the section four.22 & four.2.3. the first focuses on communicative potential while the second is concerned with the cognitive area. The scales provide designers with a mechanism for providing systematic in a syllabus through the choice of workout types. For example, a progression of workouts can be arranged in such a way to enable learners to move from less to more communicative tasks & from less to more cognitively demanding activities.
