As we know that ESP course is aimed to prepare the learners to execute specific task or set of tasks. Unfortunately, a research revealed that there was some problems related to a course, task assignment and teaching method. Therefore, Task Based Instructions (TBI) which carry out task or set of task might considered as one of suitable methods to be applied in this field. This research was conducted to uncover the advantages and limitations of implementing TBI in ESP classroom. This research was conducted in one of language center in Bandung. In order to gain comprehensive and reliable data, close-ended questionnaire, observation, and interview were employed in this qualitative study.
