Title: Task-Based Language Learning
Written By: Peter Robinson
URL: http://www.wiley.com/remtitle.cgi?isbn=1444350234
Series Title: Best of Language Learning Series
Description:

Theoretically motivated, empirical research into task-based language learning
has been prompted by proposals for task-based language teaching. These
proposals aim to design and deliver task-based units of instruction that optimize
the time learners spend in instructional programs, and so speed their exit from
them. This volume contains papers addressing issues in task-based research
into second language learning which are essential to informed pedagogic
decision-making about how best to achieve this aim. These issues include
research into the design characteristics of pedagogic tasks that promote the
accuracy, fluency and complexity of learner language; the role of individual
differences in the motivational and other cognitive variables that demands made
by pedagogic tasks draw on; the extent to which tasks, and teacher
interventions during task performance, promote the quantity and quality of
interaction that facilitate L2 learning; and the generalizability of task-based
research in laboratory contexts to classroom settings.
