Review Materials

Welcome to the “Employing Task-based Learning” Section of the ENRICH CPD Course. This Section focuses on Task-based Learning (TBL) as one of the language learning approaches most appropriate in an ELF-aware approach where the focus is on authenticity in language exposure. A detailed introduction to what is commonly understood by the notion of “task”, particularly within the CEFR, is accompanied by the description of Task-based language teaching, its main principles and its advantages. A discussion on Task-based learning within an ELF aware approach concludes this Section. This Section includes four Activities in total.
