AbstractSeveral approaches to second language teaching have been proposed since 19th century. Despite these changes in the field of language teaching task-based language teaching (TBLT) remains to be prevailing approach in language classrooms. In English language education, tasks are viewed as important components to develop proficiency and to facilitate the learning of a second or foreign language by increasing learners’ activity in the classroom. The role of a task is to stimulate a natural desire in learners to improve their language competence by challenging them to complete clear, purposeful, and real-world tasks. However, many English language teachers lack full awareness on what TBLT is and how it can be efficiently implemented in their respective classrooms. This paper, therefore, sought to provide insights on implementing language skills in TBLT and provides practitioners extensive insights on the language skills and how these skills can be put into practice in language classrooms.
