Communicative grammar awareness development in language education
The ambiguity in the title is meaningful in the following way: ‘Communicative Grammar’ describes the relationship between the rules of grammar and the pragmatic principles of communication. ‘Communicative Development’ of awareness of this relationship is a procedure which involves learners in solving problems of communicative grammar, as an individual, group and class activity. Learners for whom this procedure is most appropriate include advanced students of language, language teachers and language teacher educators, rather than language learners, whose need is to acquire language competence rather than awareness. The paper describes, exemplifies and justifies the process and the product.
