The communicative methodology or approach is the one that many English language teachers utilize.
Coming down, the goal for learning and acquiring a language we need at least two people.
As well that former methodology is combined with notional and notional-functional: we learn and acquire a communicative competence about a topic and in order to solve some task. I assume things are going that way.
However it’s common in many schools that teachers haven’t realized of these points and they assign too much translation, drills, etc., yet. / Photo from: vk com
