Abstract

This paper provides an outline of the origins, the current shape and the potential directions of task-based language teaching (TBLT) as an approach to language pedagogy. It first offers a brief description of TBLT and considers its origins within language teaching methodology and second language acquisition. It then summarises the current position of TBLT from two perspectives: first, it identifies key elements in approaches to the teaching of language based on tasks, and second, it turns to a consideration of the principal issues that have been explored in TBLT research. The paper concludes by considering directions for the future development of TBLT as an approach to language pedagogy, highlighting the need for future research to be classroom-based and programme-based.
