Alternative Approach and Strategy In Second Language Learning
This paper summarizes a range of theoretical reviews about language teaching approaches and strategies. The approaches and strategies are claimed to be effective and helpful in learning second language. A combination of an active learning approach and a project-based approach to teaching seems to be the best way to achieve a good pedagogy for teaching language as Widdowson (2004) states that the learners have different ways of learning the language and they learn it through interaction with teachers and peers as well the environment. Moreover, the availability of technology cannot be ignored as matter highly contributes to students’ interest and capacity in learning language. Therefore, this essay is intended to discuss how an active learning approach and the project-based approach fit very well in teaching language. The writer also will present information on how three main elements-teachers, students, and classroom context contribute to good learning process and how technology can contribute well in teaching language.
