Whose learning is it anyway?

Developing learner autonomy through task-based language learning

Edited by: Lynn Errey, Rudi Schollaert

How can language learning in the formal context of the classroom contribute to the learners' communicative competence, whilst at the same time enhancing their general learning skills and preparing them for life long learning? Such a challenge is complex, as is catering to the needs of individual students in a group learning context. This book explores ways in wich a traditional task-based approach to language teaching, can be extended to help students not only to become more skilful language users, but to become more skillful learners in the process.
