The 17th Annual Technology for Second Language Learning Conference

Task-based language teaching (TBLT) is an approach to language education intended to prepare students for language use beyond the classroom by providing them with opportunities to perform carefully designed learning tasks simulating real-world tasks.  Task design is informed by hypotheses about learning and analysis of the language, topics, and genres of communication that students will need beyond the classroom. Pedagogic tasks are sequenced according to their performance demands to prepare learners for participation in communication tasks outside the classroom.
