This article provides a theoretical analysis of the possibilities of applying principles of the learner-centred approach to English grammar teaching. In the educational environment in Slovakia, the adoption of meaningful and active learning approaches as well as the creation of a positive classroom atmosphere are the most pressing needs. Some psychological and neuropsychological aspects underlying the importance of these principles are also discussed. Furthermore, in order to highlight their impact on the learning process, the author compares and contrasts traditional and learner-centred approaches.
