6. Description Abstract • Communication cannot be equated with questions and answers (Q/A) practice.

• Communication can be defined as the expression, interpretation, and negotiation of meaning in a given context for a specific purpose.

• Interaction fosters acquisition when a communication problem arises and L2 learners are engaged in resolving it through interaction and negotiation of meaning.

• Tasks promote acquisition and provide a purpose for language use. A communicative interactive task is a learning endeavor that requires L2 learners to comprehend, negotiate, manipulate and produce the target language as they need to perform some set of work-plans.

• Interactive tasks are a good example of communication tasks and should substitute traditional oral practice.
