Task as Context for the Framing, Reframing, and Unframing of Language.
Bygate, M.
System, v27 n1 p33-48 Mar 1999
Illustrates how tasks can be used systematically as context for developing learners' knowledge about language, skill in using language, and teachers' ability to teach. Outlines role for tasks in language learning, identifies limitation in previous studies of tasks to promote learning, and suggests need for tasks to lead learners to integrate fluency, accuracy, and complexity in communication. Draws on studies illustrating how tasks affect learners' language focus and language processing. (Author/VWL)
