The goal for all of my ESL lessons, and particularly work-related classes, is “communicative competence”. Communicative competence involves the ability to converse or correspond with a native speaker of the target language in a real-life situation, with emphasis on communication of ideas rather than on simply correctness of language form or knowledge of grammar rules. It is facilitated when learners are engaged in interaction and meaningful communication. Meaningful communication results from students processing content that is relevant, purposeful, interesting and engaging. During my ESL teaching career there has been a keen interest from non-English speaking students for learning of American Government. To accommodate this interest I have incorporated US Government studies in my curriculum.
