Welcome to the JALT Task-based Special Interest Group

The JALT Task-Based Learning (TBL) SIG is a Special Interest Group aimed at teachers who currently use, or are interested in using, task-based approaches in the classroom. In particular, the SIG focuses on issues related to Task-Based Language teaching and learning in the Asian EFL context, where TBLT has yet to enter the mainstream of language pedagogy. We hope that the SIG will serve as a useful forum for the exchange of practical teaching ideas, theoretical discussion, and academic studies of TBLT issues. SIG activities include:(i) a regular publication
(ii) a mailing list for members
(iii) an biennial conference

Now in its tenth year, and with a growing membership, the SIG has firmly established itself as a presence in Japan and Asia. If you are interested in becoming a member and/or playing an official role in the management of the JALT TBL SIG please contact us at We are also looking for written submissions, both theoretical and practical, for our publication. Submissions should be sent to our Publications Chair, at
