Hi ! In the teacher training college we have been reading about Task- Based Language Teaching. In case you do not know what I am writing about, here goes a very little definition of it:

           "This is an approach which 
focuses on the use of authentic language and on asking students
            to do meaningful tasks using the target language.  Assessment is primarily based on task
            outcome (in other words the appropriate completion of real- world tasks) rather than on
            accuracy of prescribed language forms. TBLT has its origins in Communicative Language

Well, for homework, I had to select one or two pedagogical tasks and elaborate them in terms of macrofunctions, microfuctions and grammatical  exponents. So here it is:

Role play. At a train station. The group will be divided into two. The first group will be train inspectors and the other one will be travellers. Travellers need to know the train’s timetable.

Exchanging goods and services

Asking for and giving information

- Use polite    
- Wh- questions
- The time
Role Play. At the pet shop. You have decided to buy a new pet, but you do not know which one is the best for you. Make a list of advantages and disadvantages. Compare them.
The group will be divided into two. The first group will be customers and the other one will be salespeople.

Exchanging goods and services.

Making comparisons

Comparisons with adjectives
