A Lecture for Undergraduates: Communicative Competence & Bilingualism

By Ma Jingyuan

        On November 18th, a lecture entitled Communicative Competence & Bilingualism was given by Dr. Indika Liyanage in Room D106 of Lize Building at 3:40 p.m..

        Dr. Indika Liyanage is a senior lecturer of the School of Education & Professional Studies of Griffith University. Over the past 15 years he has published 15 journal articles, 10 conference papers, and 10 book chapters. Besides, he received a PhD Doctor of Philosophy, a MA Applied Linguistics and a MA in TESOL. In the lecture, he began with some questions focused on “language”, then he drew a conclusion from his explanations of those questions. “The main purpose of learning a language is to become a competent communicator.” he said.

      After that he introduced communicative competences, which included grammatical competence, discourse competence, sociolinguistic competence and strategic competence. Language learners needed to master all four communicative competences in order to be proficient in the target language. When it came to the differences between general English and Academic English, it was important to ensure sufficient input so that output could be produced.

       In the end, the aim of bilingual education was lifted up to a cultural level by Dr. Indika Liyanage. He thought bilinguals should have a sense of responsibility for protecting languages and more importantly, the culture. "Cultures are preserved not crushed; cultures are valued and respected.” he added.
