Collaborative learning is based upon working together on the same task. As learners try to accomplish a task in small groups and search for understanding, they can benefit from each other. The implementation of collaborative learning provides considerable advantages for learners. It gradually contributes to the development of social communication and enhances learners’ experiences. The use of this educational approach has an influence on the promotion of student-centered learning which allows learners to construct meaning through interactions with each other. It should be underlined that collaborative learning holds an important place in language learning. Its use in the language classroom can help learners develop communicative competence. This paper attempts to explain the benefits of using collaborative learning in learning settings. In particular, the paper endeavors to demonstrate the contributions of this approach to the development of language learning.
