This paper reports the attitudes of teachers in Jamnagar District, Gujarat towards implementing the Communicative Language Teaching (CLT). A brief review of the teaching methods and approaches to ELT is presented with an objective of underlining the relevance of CLT. Teachers’ feelings and beliefs about the Communicative Approach are ascertained from their statements in response to an attitudinal questionnaire reflecting the principles of this approach. Teachers’ behavior is observed and described to compare with what they reported to be the effective implementation of the principles of the approach. This study provides analyses of the phenomenon of teachers’ attitudes towards the effective implementation of the Communicative Approach in ESL classrooms. The findings can be used to complement studies on teachers’ attitudes towards CLT.
