Task Based Learning
Task-Based Learning (TBL) requires students to use functional language to complete meaningful language tasks. Such tasks could include making an appointment with a doctor, conducting an interview or calling customer services. Cutting Edge 3rd Edition has been designed around the principles of TBL, so that students learn practical language and use all of their skills simultaneously to communicate in real-life situations at school or work, or on social occasions.
The advantages include:
• Students practise all aspects of language simultaneously and get more varied exposure to language.
• Personalised context and meaningful language.
• Motivational and fun.
• TBL encourages the development of strong communication skills.
