In order to cater to the demand of the day the text book publishers started labelling text books as task based. Syllabus designers started claiming that their syllabus is based on task based learning, though some of th em are not aware of the difference between task - supported learning and task based learning. The present paper seeks to study and present the strengths and weaknesses of Task based learning approach.
