Communicative Language Teaching (CLT) advocates teaching practices that develop learners’ abilities to communicate in a second language. It represents a change of focus in language teaching from linguistic structure to learners’ need for developing communication skills. In recent decades,many English as Foreign Language (EFL) classrooms have adopted CLT into their curricula. The study is motivated by the review of previous literature showing that although teachers’ attitudes play a crucial role inrevealing their thinking about CLT and their implementation of CLT in the classrooms, there are few studies in Indonesia have focused on teachers’ attitudes toward CLT in a particular EFL setting. The study aimed at investigating teachers’ attitudes and students’ perception toward CLT. Qualitative method was used in the study. Qualitative approach is considered as an appropriate research design. Then the result of this research is presented descriptively in order to reveal the teachers’ attitudes and the students’ perception comprehensively. The findings of this research show when the teachers were interviewed, they hold positive attitude towards teaching English through CLT. In other hand, when they were observed the teachers have negative attitudetowards teaching English through CLT. There is a clear mismatch between teachers’ classroom practices and their expressed attitudes towards communicative approach prompted an in-depth analysis of their responses to the attitude questions. To overcome the mismatch the teachers should be in line between what they think and believe and what they practice. If they hold positive attitude towards the principles of CLT, they should apply in their classroom. Students have goodperception toward the implementation of communicative language teaching.Only some of them have bad perception. These conditions can facilitate the teachers to easier implement the communicative approach.
