Abstract

The research was focused on the use of a communicative method of teaching. Through the use of such an advanced approach, students are unable to be considered proficient speakers of the English language. Various factors were highlighted in this research that causes a hindrance in the success of communicative method teaching. It was also identified how this approach can have positive effects on the students that would help them become proficient speakers of the English language (Nazir, Abbas, & Naz, 2020). A 5-point Likert scale was used in the questionnaires that were filled by 100 students of only one private sector in Lahore. The results deducted the positive effects of this approach along with the reasons for its inability to produce proficient speakers and how it can be sorted out.
