YILORM BARRIENTOS, Yasna Angélica  and  LIZASOAIN CONEJEROS, Andrea Bárbara Alicia. Evaluation of the Implementation of the FOCAL SKILLS Approach. Lit. lingüíst. [online]. 2012, n.25, pp.121-143. ISSN 0716-5811.

This work describes the methodological approach to communicative competence FOCAL SKILLS as proposed by Hastings (2007 [1988]) -an approach that is related to Jakobson's communication model (1960) and to Chomsky's theory of communicative competence (1965) - and considers its possible application within the Universidad Austral de Chile as a strategy for improving acquisition of English as a foreign language by students. This paper also examines the methodology for implementing this approach and the obstacles which the researchers have faced, along with possible solutions.

Keywords : Communication model; communicative competence; innovating methodological approach in the classroom; FOCAL SKILLS; acquisition of foreign languages.
