Why are many teachers around the world moving toward task-based learning (TBL)? This shift is based on the strong belief that TBL facilitates second language acquisition and makes second language learning and teaching more principled and effective.

Based on insights gained from using tasks as research tools, this volume shows how teachers can use tasks as teaching tools. Taskbased pair and group activities ensure that students take responsibility for much of the work and have greater involvement in the learning process. At the same time, such activities free the teacher to focus on monitoring students and providing relevant feedback. Contributors to this volume found that using task-based applications in their classrooms builds a sense of community, develops critical thinking skills and intercultural communicative competence, increases cultural awareness, and encourages cooperation, all of which prepare learners to engage in real-world language and culture. In addition, this volume inspires with ideas from teachers who skillfully integrated technology with task-based learning using video and audio recordings, music, and the Internet, including Web 2.0 tools.
