- As a new trend of communicative teaching methods, task-based language teaching method appeared in 1980s. The New English Curriculum Standard highly advocates the use of task-based language teaching (TBLT), in which teachers should try their best to avoid using traditional teaching method of inputting language knowledge and adopt task-based teaching method to involve students’ active participation in the task performance so as to help them learn English through thinking, discussing, communicating and cooperating and others to learn and use English. It follows the principle of “learning by doing”, lets students communicate with target language in real context, completes the task of learning goals, constructs target language system in their own experience and forms a comprehensive language using ability. The task-based language teaching method changed the traditional teaching mode, which has its own advantages: students are the center of the class, and the teachers are not the dominators and instructors but participants and guiders to match students in the entire learning process. Students can understand and use language through learning and analyzing to form comprehensive language use ability. Employing TBLT in primary school English teaching can develop students’ integrated language skills.
