what is TBLT?

Task-Based Language Teaching (TBLT) is an educational framework for the theory and practice of teaching second or foreign languages. Based on empirical research, TBLT adopts meaning-based, communicative tasks as the central unit for defining language learning needs, determining curriculum goals, designing activity in the (language) classroom, and assessing language competencies.

Welcoming message from IATBLT President,  Martin East (The University of Auckland)

Would you like to collaborate in this project? We are looking for interns.
