Task based learning is important because it replicates real-life is a more meaningful way than many traditional language learning activities which can lead to more meaningful and memorable lessons. TBL helps students do something in the target language that they’re likely familiar with doing in their own language.
Well designed tasks within this approach should elicit the target grammar and vocabulary in a natural way.
A task-based activity is one in which students have to use language to achieve a specific outcome. The best TBL activities reflect real life and allow students to use whatever language they want as long as they are able to complete the task.
There are a number of steps to follow if you want to plan a task-based grammar lesson. They include:1 Choosing a language goal. Identifying the language skills necessary to meet that goal. Introducing the lesson and task. The students perform the task. Students do self-evaluation. A focus on specific language structures that were necessary to complete the task.
