Students' and teachers' attitudes towards an English language teaching approach play an important role for its implementation success or failure. This study measured Pakistani government school students' and teachers' attitudes towards Communicative Language Teaching (CLT) and Grammar Translation (GT). Two separate survey instruments were used to assess students' and teachers' attitudes. Data were collected from students and teachers at two government secondary schools located in Quetta, Balochistan, Pakistan. A total of 204 students (102 females and 102 males) and 13 teachers (five females and eight males) participated in this present study. Overall, both students and teachers showed favorable attitudes towards CLT. In contrast, both the teachers and students showed either less favorable attitudes or a neutral stance towards GT. Finally, this study suggests that policy makers consider adopting or adapting CLT to teach English in the aforementioned schools. Recommendations for future research are also suggested.
