This study was carried out at a college in North Cyprus, to examine the use of communicative language teaching (CLT) and blended teaching methods (BTM) in enhancing the communicative competence of EFL learners in an SLA classroom to improve teaching method used during instruction delivery. Eight research questions were investigated during the study. The study was conducted through an experimental research method which included a sample size of 55 participants. A speaking and listening improvement test and a well-structured questionnaire were used to collect information from the respondents. Data collected were analyzed using, frequency distribution, mean and standard, while a chi-square analysis was used to determine if there was a significant difference that existed between the two language teaching methods. The result of the study provided significant findings on the use of CLT and BTM toward enhancing the performance of EFL learners’ spoken language and effective language instruction delivery
