Abstract:

This book was written for language teachers by language teachers, with a
view to encouraging readers to use more tasks in their lessons, and to
explore for themselves various aspects of task-based teaching and learning.
It gives insights into ways in which tasks can be designed, adapted and
implemented in a range of teaching contexts and illustrates ways in which
tasks and task-based learning can be investigated as a research activity.
Practising language teachers and student professionals on MA TESOL/Applied
Linguistics courses will find this a rich resource of varied experience in
the classroom and a stimulus to their own qualitative studies.

Reviews
'Classroom teaching and learning ordinarily centre on specific language
tasks. Instruction becomes more effective when teachers understand the role
of language tasks, recognize their students' needs, and apply both types of
information in a sound, creative way. With better task-based instruction as
a goal, current and future teachers will benefit from the enlightening
explorations in this book. In addition, researchers will find that this
book can inform and enrich many classroom investigations.' - Professor
Rebecca Oxford, Department of Education, University of Maryland, USA

'A rich collection of tasks, used successfully by the chapter authors, that
EFL teachers anywhere can use to increase their own repertoire - or to
implement task-based learning for the first time in their own classrooms.
ESL teachers in the United States and other English-speaking countries
likewise can make effective use of every chapter in the book.' - Professor
Betty Lou Leaer, Dean, New York Institute of Technology in Amman, Jordan
