In Communicative Language Teaching Approach, the aim of language teaching is to teach the communication process. However, the primary requirement for any communication is the existence of a meaningful input to be got across. If the necessary knowledge of a language is not obtained, then the desired communication may not be realized due to a lack of essential input. Thus, the structure of the target language should be known by speakers to a certain extend if they are non-native speakers of the target language as in the case of English as a Second/Foreign Language (EFL/ESL) learners in Turkey and Bosnia and Herzegovina. At this point the notions of language accusation and language learning step in as EFL/ESL learners may not have the opportunity to be exposed to the target language, in this case "English", sufficiently. The reasons for this situation may vary according to the primary needs of the students, different educational beliefs and opportunities. In this paper three main topics are presented about Communicative Language Teaching Approach including the application of Communicative Language Teaching Approach in the modern English classes, the effects of this approach on students' motivation and some activities based on CLT.
