Abstract

The teaching of English in Indonesia has been marked with the frequent changes
in the curriculum. However, those changes do not imply whatsoever any changes
in the way teachers deliver lessons in a moment-to-moment classroom teaching.
We seem to be too much preoccupied with new concepts and perhaps approach to
teaching English but fail to formulate how a certain concept can be translated into
classroom methods and techniques. This paper seeks to shed a light on how a synthesis
of various approaches in language learning can be achieved to provide favorable
learning atmosphere for students and more importantly how different theories
on language learning can be transformed into an operational method and
techniques in the classroom.
