Teacher Talking Time 03: Task-based Language Teaching

  • Language Studies International 1055 Yonge Street Toronto, ON, M4W 2L2 Canada (map)

Learn YOUR English Network is honoured to announce another event in partnership with Language Studies International (LSI), one of the world’s most recognized language institutes. These events are conceived with LYE’s initiative in mind: to change the way teachers and educators perceive further education in our field.

About the Event

In this session, we will look at one of the most consistent approaches to Second Language Acquisition, Task-Based Language Teaching. Three core approaches/models (Ellis or Long, Willis, and Nunan) to task-based language teaching (TBLT) will be outlined. A critical look at what constitutes a task will be discussed as well as a presentation of sample tasks for each. Emphasis will be placed on when and how teachers can exploit critical incidents to address linguistic deficiencies and generate better output. Come prepared to learn, reflect, and connect.
