Welcome to the 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 teachers 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 task-based 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 Questions and Answers page can help you.
News My book ‘A Framework for Task-based Learning’ has been republished as an E-book and is available from Intrinsic Books at http://www.intrinsicbooks.co.uk/title_by_title/framework.html (It went out of print and is not available from Amazon.)
