ISSN: in appl.

Task-Based Language Teaching (TBLT) is an educational framework for the
theory and practice of teaching second or foreign languages. It is based
on a constellation of ideas issuing from philosophy of education,
theories of second language acquisition, empirical findings on effective
instructional techniques, and the exigencies of language learning in
contemporary society. Though there is broad interest in the potential
value of TBLT to foster worthwhile language teaching and learning, there
is also considerable diversity in the theoretical scope, applied practice, and
research that corresponds with the TBLT name.

In concert with current interest in Task-Based Language Teaching, this
book series is devoted to the dissemination of TBLT issues and
practices, and to fostering improved understanding and communication
across the various clines of TBLT work. As series editors, we seek to
publish cutting-edge work that defines and advances the domain.
Empirical research, theoretical discourse, and well-informed practical
applications of TBLT constitute the core features highlighted in the
series. We welcome edited as well as authored volumes, and we invite
submissions related to the full diversity of language education
contexts, including bi- and multi-lingual, heritage, second, foreign,
child, and adult language learning.

The targeted audiences for this series include students, scholars,
practitioners, and policy makers around the globe. Key among these are:

1. University undergraduate and graduate students engaged in courses of
study related to language teaching, applied linguistics, second language
studies, second language acquisition, and other fields.

2. Academics conducting research and teaching on TBLT, language
pedagogy, second language acquisition, and related disciplines.

3. Educators and policy makers concerned with work at the interface
between instructional practice and the value of language learning in
schools and for the benefit of individuals and society.
