Abstract


This study attempts to demonstrate how a task-based syllabus (TBS) can be implemented to facilitate language learning in an English as a Foreign Language (EFL) environment. As a first step, this research clarifies what is meant by "task" in the context of the task-based curriculum.  Then, important theories that have contributed to the task-based curriculum will be discussed, followed by a discussion of its advantages and disadvantages in the classroom. The researcher then finds ideal teaching scenarios for enhancing language learning strategy awareness and facilitating second language acquisition using a task-based curriculum.

Keywords— Task, Task-based Language Teaching, Task-based Syllabus, Second Language Acquisition, English as a Foreign Language
