    Abstract :
    Task-Based Language Teaching has emerged as an effective approach towards teaching language to learners of any age. Unfortunately, it has been seen that the practice of lecture based method and teacher centered teaching of English still persists in the ELT scenario in India. This paper discusses various aspects of Task-Based Language Teaching such as, the principles on which this approach is based, its characteristics, its components, etc. Next, it illustrates the various stages of task design. Also, it analyses some effective tasks so that similar tasks can be designed. Besides, it critically analyses one activity which is very traditional in its approach and gives suggestions for its modification as a task. It is hoped that this paper will give some ideas about teaching English following TBLT and how tasks should be designed for efficient English language teaching.
