Abstract:The purposes of this study were to explore Japanese students' views towards communicative language learning, and to explore how differing viewe might affect the classroom dynamic. lt was found that Japanese students of English as a second language held views based on their prior learning experiences under grammar-translation methodology. Such views were incongruent in various ways with the communicative language teaching methodology under which they presently study. This paper outlines possibilities for bridging the gap between teacher and students, and suggests possible areas for further research.
