Teaching English speaking skills is a challenge for teachers in non-native English speaking countries. In reality, language learners often neglect to join English-speaking activities. Moreover, they tend to focus on grammar, not meaning. To deal with this problem, English teachers can take advantage of the task-based approach (TBA) for their speaking classes. In fact, TBA is considered a useful approach to help learners improve speaking skills effectively. It is also called the learner-centered approach, which emphasizes the roles of learners’ roles during the learning process. Therefore, this paper aims to introduce the theoretical basis of TBA, the roles of teachers and learners in TBA and Willis’s (1996) TBA framework. Furthermore, the example of implementing task-based speaking lessons is illustrated in this paper. Besides that, some recommendations for further research of implementing TBA are presented in conclusion.
