Abstract:
			
Designing Language Teaching Tasks provides a research-based account of
how experienced teachers and task designers prepare activities for use
in the language classroom. It gives detailed information on the
procedures which a group of expert materials designers follow, and
compares those procedures with ones used by a second, less experienced
group. The book discusses issues of research methodology in a way
which will be of interest to all students of applied linguistics. It
is written in a clear and comprehensible style, and provides practical
guidance on how to go about designing language teaching activities. As
such it will be relevant to practising teachers and other
professionals who need to write their own teaching tasks, or even
modify already-exisiting tasks for their students. Though the examples
in the book deal with English as a foreign language, what it discusses
will be of interest to teachers of any foreign language.
