Task-based language teaching (TBLT) has become one of the major approaches to teaching foreign and second languages in use today. Research within the fields of second language acquisition (SLA) and TBLT has provided evidence supporting the benefits of tasks in promoting language learning.
The textbook presents pedagogic and real-world speaking and writing tasks as the basis of its organization. The target audience of the textbook includes high beginner to low intermediate Korean language learners in both Korean as a foreign language (KFL) and Korean as a second language (KSL) contexts. A defining characteristic of the textbook is that all tasks were designed, tested, and revised based on their use in actual Korean language classes. The in-class task performance process offers invaluable opportunities for using the Korean language in meaningful communicative contexts and drives Korean language learners to become Korean language users.
