  1. Hi Marc, how about practical ways of focusing on form (not forms) during the task cycle?

    I’m happy to see the accommodating time window for this chat. Hope to contribute to this one but don’t really have a topic to suggest.

    Mine for now is TBL for Higher Level students (skillful at avoiding using any ‘newer’ language requiring effort)

    Hi Marc,
    Just discovered TBLTChat. Love it. Not sure if you’ve already talked about this: repeating tasks in Jane Willis’ model of TBL.Is it always worth it?How?Why?


  7. Maite says:

    I am interested in the focus on form through tasks but I don’t know much (or rather anything) about it. I think I would be able to participate more in the suggestion of TBLT in lower levels as that was my only experience with tasks as a methodology. I’ll try to be there whatever the topic is.

    hi all

    although i am no great expert in TBLT i do see a lot of naive misunderstandings about it, one of the latest is from recent talk which tars TBLT as banning use of own language (L1); whereas my understanding is that people doing a task can use any resources they need to complete a task hence including own language. video linky [https://britishcouncil.adobeconnect.com/_a917587435/p8xxqgy1cbh/?launcher=false&fcsContent=true&pbMode=normal]

    even with presenter’s caveats about giving a very potted history and taking into account presentational rhetoric the claim is still hard to stomach, maybe it’s just me?

    perhaps TBLT chat can run a prize for examples of TBLT misunderstood : )
