Objectives

Communication is a social act through which various social actions are carried out, language being the primary tool. Learning a language, therefore, must be more than gaining knowledge of its linguistic
structure: the successful language learner is also communicatively competent. In this section, we identify grade-level-appropriate communicative social actions as well as the linguistic structures required to carry them out. The basic social actions one engages in every day include greetings, giving and following basic classroom and other instructions, and describing or reporting things, events, and situations in immediate needs and surroundings, such as family, personal preferences, and daily routines. More advanced social actions include telling stories and personal experiences and expressing one‘s opinions, attitudes, feelings, emotions acts that extend beyond one‘s immediate needs and environment. At the highest level, the language learner would engage in analyzing, discussing, and debating abstract ideas and social issues as well as comprehending various literary and non-literary genres, such as prose, novels, newspaper articles, movies, and public forums.
