This chapter focuses on the importance of communicative tasks in language learning. A task is an activity with a goal in which students use language to achieve a real outcome. Well-designed tasks simulate scenes requiring true communication and provide many more opportunities for output than in a teacher-centered class. The discussions cover the elements of a communicative task; types of communicative tasks; writing tasks; and reading tasks.
