Unit 9: Task-based learning

Average: 3.6 (7 votes)

Task-based activities present opportunities for learners to practise reading and writing skills in meaningful contexts that often mimic real-life tasks and situations.  

In this video, watch how the teacher takes his class through key stages of a task-based learning activity. Observe how his students practise relevant functional language, whilst interacting with and finally producing meaningful texts, which relate to real-life situations.

Finally, listen to the teacher sharing his experience of task-based teaching and his tips to ensure successful learning.
