Over the past few decades, Task-based Language Teaching (TBLT) has gained momentum as a research-based approach to high-quality second and foreign language teaching. Worldwide, a growing number of teachers adopt communicative tasks in their language education. In my talk, I will explore what the available research has to say on the added value of using tasks as the starting point for the organization of high-quality language teaching. I will address pressing questions such as: Is task-based language teaching suitable for beginners and advanced learners? How can teachers integrate the teaching of grammar rules and vocabulary in task-based language teaching? Are tasks appropriate for motivating language learners? Should teachers use tasks to assess their students’ language
competences? Which obstacles do language teachers face when implementing TBLT?
