An Applied Psychological Approach to Language Teaching

Dr. Tasleem Ahmad War,

University of Kashmir, India

The scope of the present research is very broad as there are already some researchers who have worked on this area and their efforts have been benefitted in the classrooms. In the same way, once this kind of psychological approach is established and organised, it can solve real life problems faced by language teachers and students in the classroom. The methodology used, that is, the tools which have really helped the researcher in carrying out this experiment was group discussions, mock interviews, ten-minute brief presentations on the topic of their choice, conversations, dramatising certain acts of famous plays etc. This was followed by recording their individual feedback in questionnaires. All this was done in a stress free environment and learners were involved positively and encouragingly in these creative exercises. The result of the above innovative experiment was that majority of the students, as against the minority, have been able to hone their communicative competence and what made it possible is not only the matter but the manner in which they were taught how to develop this skill.
