well then?

What we know as “Communicative Language Teaching” does not have exclusive rights over ‘communication’ as an aim, just as ‘communicating’ does not necessarily involve ‘teaching’ or lead to 'learning'.

Anyway - to what extent does what happens in classrooms depend on the tastes and preferences of?
a) the teacher
b) the learners

and ..... how often do (or should) the two sets of tastes and preferences coincide?
plus ..... how often do we know?

I'm not talking about the school system here, I'm referring to adult TESOL courses.
