This text bank is central hub for teachers and researchers interested in sharing language learning tasks. Everyone can download tasks. Please share widely with your communities. As a member of IATBLT, you are able to submit tasks for publication on the site. You should have received an access code via email if you are member.

Tasks that are submitted are not immediately available. The Task Bank advisory board provides feedback on each task before it is published, offering a collaborative service to the field, and ensuring that every task on the Task Bank is a task (widely defined).

Please consider having your TBLT and L2 students use and/or submit to the Task Bank. We will be giving individualized feedback for the tasks that are submitted and providing an opportunity to share task-based work in a worldwide outlet. Please note that one needs to be members of IATBLT to submit a task; for students who are not IATBLT members and not interested in becoming members, their IATBLT member professor is welcome to submit their tasks on their behalf (there is a place to write-in the ownership of the task so it is not associated with your name if you did not create it).
