Ellis 2013: Responding to critics of TBLT

Shona Whyte's curator insight, September 27, 2013 8:08 AM

In this article in University of Sydney papers in TESOL, 2013, Ellis tackles 8 criticisms of TBLT, downgraded to "misconceptions" on the part of writers such as Widdowson, Swan, Sheen, and Seedhouse, before addressing Swan's "legislation by hypothesis" attack.  In his conclusion, he acknowledges that "TBLT offers a radically different approach to teaching a second language. As such, it is not surprising that its advocacy has met with resistance, especially from those who, for one reason or another, support a more traditional ‘focus-on-forms’ approach."  Ellis expresses a personal preference for a short, sharp shock of intense TBLT teaching in a curriculum which includes other approaches, rather than a watered-down task-supported approach spread throughout the curriculum.

Excellent article on TBLT.

An interesting read. I love learning about what I do, revisiting ideas and theories and reworking on my techniques.

I haven't managed to get access to the article. I'm not sure if it's still available, but I suppose the presentation takes the paper content into account anyway
