The teaching of English assumes today as objective the development of the communicative, interactive and intercultural competence. Both Interactive Language Didactics and Real English Use proclaim a kind of Interactive task-based teaching an essential component of this objective. They offer students opportunities to interact meaningfully with other people in cultural situations. The article aims at the demonstration of how the Interactive Language Didactic focuses the development of the communicative, interactive and intercultural competence, and how activities like "The line of American Writers" can be made to archive this goal taking into account the real English use. As theoretical methods were used: the dialectic, the historical, the logic, the systemic and the modeling; as empirical methods were used: the class observation, the document analysis and the interview. The Line of American Writers is a technique for the interactive learning based on real English that can be used in the teaching of English at Foreign Languages Education Career. The strategy was implemented during two years with first year English students. Satisfactory results were obtained in terms of the English learning objectives, its linguistic and communicative dimensions, and the learning culture through reflection, the interaction and the language contextualization in different cultures fostering human values and positive attitudes toward the students' global formation.
