Jane Willis: award winning writer, speaker and consultant on English language teaching

Welcome to the new Willis-elt site!

The aim of this site is to help those already involved in task-based learning and teaching (TBLT) to extend their knowledge and skills, and to introduce as many new people as possible to TBL.  A task-based methodology can be used for teaching any foreign language, in fact TBLT also stands for task-based language teaching, also referred to as task-based instruction. 

The best way to learn about TBLT is to DO it. Try out the free down-loadable lesson plans with commentaries.  Check out our past conference presentations on task- based teaching, grammar, lexis and spoken language. Follow the links to articles and books and then if you have a question – see if the new Questions and Answers page can help you.
