    Question Language centered Approach

    Hello,

    It is written about the language centered approach that “ the learners are simply used, as a means of identifying the target situation. In other words; Instead of taking the whole of English and teaching it to the learner, as happens in general English, only a restricted area of the language is taught”

    And this was what I have understood from it:
    “Teachers center upon the learner’s need, only a specific language or zone will be taught to students”
    Can you please tell me whether what I have understood is right or false?! Thank you in advance.

    Re: Language centered Approach

    You say: "it is written".
    Would you please tell us where the statement you quote is written? I would like more context before attempting to answer your question.
    Thank you in advance,
    John

    Re: Language centered Approach

    Yes sorry Sir, I have forgotten to mention the source from which I have taken the paragraph, my bad !!! Well, the first statement was written in English for specific purposes: a learning-centered approach by Tom Hutchinson, Alan Waters , page 67. And what is in green is what I did understand from it.

    Yes, but I would change only a specific language to only specific language.
