Abstract:

This book brings together research that makes use of tasks to examine oral
interaction, written production, vocabulary and reading, lexical innovation
and pragmatics in different formal language learning contexts and in
different languages (English, French, German, Italian and Spanish). It will
be of interest to professionals and students working in SLA research and
language pedagogy.


Review:
The book provides a much needed examination of options in classifying and
sequencing language learning tasks. Framed by Robinson's insightful
overview of competing theoretical claims in the area, eleven new data-based
studies elucidate relationships between pedogic task types and accuracy,
complexity and fluency in L2 speech and writing, and between task types and
acquisition. Garcia-Mayo's book advances the international research agenda
on task-based language teaching. Mike Long, University of Maryland.
