Abstract
Communicative competence is not confined to the communicators’ ability to make their utterance adapt to the context, because communicators take a leading position in dynamic process of communication. In order to make the communication successful, communicators should also learn to take advantage of the dynamic properties of context to select the most appropriate contexts to comprehend the utterance and construct a context which is beneficial to them. This will indicate a new look at the research on communicative competence. This paper will give some implications for improving communicative competence in English teaching on the basis of the dynamic property of the context and communication
