This volume is based on a conference session on task-based language learning and teaching at the 20th Biannual Meeting of the German Association for L2 Research (DGFF) at the University of Munich in October 2005. Though the empirical studies collected in this book vary considerably in focus, methodology and perspective, they all revolve around three central notions: «cognition», «process», and «communication / collaboration». Task-based language learning and teaching is now one of the most productive fields within the wider domain of Applied Linguistics and Second Language Acquisition Research. This volume brings together studies that have been conducted in Canada, Germany, Japan, New Zealand, and the USA. They investigate, respectively, the acquisition of L2 English, German, and Spanish in secondary and university education.
