20201016T1200 20201016T1345 Asia/Ho_Chi_Minh COMMUNICATIVE ACTIVITIES TO IMPROVE STUDENTS’ GRAMMATICAL COMPETENCE

The research investigates the use of communicative activities in English-teaching classroom with the case study of 8th graders at Vo Thi Sau Secondary School in Hai Duong City, Vietnam with the objective of analyzing the impacts of communicative activities on the improvement of the students' grammatical competence as well as figuring out the students' attitudes towards English learning after communicative exercises were chosen to support English teaching in the class. A questionnaire and the first semester and the second semester English tests were used as the instruments for data collection after eight communicative activities were applied for 10 weeks. The outcomes of the questionnaire and the test scores show that the applied communicative activities have had positive influence on the students' grammatical competence, by improving morale and motivating students to learn rather than helping them memorize the grammar directly. The students also reported that they felt comfortable studying with the teaching method. As a result, the research outcomes have encouraged both teachers and students to utilize this type of teaching and learning more frequently, as they can bring about positive results on the students' English language proficiency level.
