(An Indonesian Textbook Case Study)

Femmy Tresje Pelealu
(Lecturer at Manado State University, North Sulawesi, Indonesia)

Communicative competence comprises four areas of language knowledge and skill: linguistic competence, sociolinguistic competence, strategic competence, and discourse competence. It requires that for real communication we need knowledge and skill in linguistics as well as linguistic social and cultural contexts, discourse, and strategy of communication. The four areas of communicative competence have been applied by the writers of the textbook analyzed in this paper. Linguistic competence is applied primarily through operational verbs, while social and cultural competencies are realized in the social and cultural topics or themes throughout the textbook. Discourse competence is used through the use of reading practices within the textbook. Strategic competence, although not explicitly addressed in the textbook, is implicitly stated through the activities of listening and speaking (oral language).
Keywords: communicative competence, linguistic competence and social cultural competence
