Mental Enlightenment Scientific-Methodological Journal


In the article it was given about a learning process on an integrative basis, integrative-educational activities and integrated didactic approaches. This approach does not neglect, either, the home languages of the learners, especially when they explicitly taught. One can therefore have two (or even three or four) languages that are being “tackled” simultaneously. Despite the great potential and effectiveness of the integrative skills approach many teachers, especially in EFL contexts still implement the segregated skills teaching by presenting one skill separately from the others. In many EFL programs, courses on speaking are isolated from writing or listening learning activities are divorced from reading. This article presents the benefits of using integrated approach in English teaching.
