Stemming from the traditional view of TBLT as a ‘learner centred approach’ as opposed to the traditional ‘teacher centred approach’, the paper provides insights into the role of teach- ers in TBLT. It describes the role of the teacher as mediator in task-based language teaching activities, and looks at the characteristics of ef- fective teachers. It presents evidence of limits of independent language learning stressing the im- portance of the teacher as facilitator. It then fo- cuses on empirical evidence of language teach- ing practice, where teachers implement TBLT by manipulating and changing the tasks based on the context. Finally, it presents the teacher as a researcher who investigates classroom situ- ations to contribute to TBLT implementation.
