Perceptions of Task-Based Language Teaching: A Study of Iranian EFL Learners
Hadi, Atefeh
English Language Teaching, v6 n1 p103-111 2013
This paper explored perceptions of Task-Based Language Teaching (TBLT) among a group of Iranian female learners. A sample of 88 English as a Foreign Language (EFL) learners participated in the study. A task-based questionnaire was developed to examine the perceptions of the participants. The results suggested a high level of understanding of TBLT concepts among the majority of respondents. They also revealed a few negative views on TBLT implementation. This implies that EFL teachers can be positive in successfully applying TBLT in their classes because the learners are willing to adapt themselves to this new approach of language teaching.
