Language acquisition is one of the quintessential human traits. Traditional approaches in teaching English have concerned thinkers, educationists, linguists and visionaries across time. The ability to communicate in a foreign language with meticulousness and accuracy needs an enormous amount of student engagement.
Encouraging students to use the language is cornerstone in learning any language, leave aside acquiring a foreign language. While traditional approaches failed to do justice to the language acquisition process, an alternative teaching approach emerged that believed, fluency precedes accuracy. From a teacher-dominated classroom to a learner-centred classroom, the journey has spanned over a few centuries.
