What do their responses indicate?

The task-based approach to critical writing may be an effective means of motivating and challenging learners to think for themselves. The use of lifelike tasks may be considered in providing a clear context for writing.

The incorporation of oral communication tasks that provide students opportunities to evaluate language and use it appropriately may be done to enhance their critical thinking skills.

The research process may be less daunting and more appealing by forming research teams or groups.

The results may be considered in evaluating research writing courses or program. Many students stated that they benefited from debating, sharing their findings, and listening to their classmates’ findings. Therefore, course and program evaluators and designers may consider integrating oral communication components in writing courses.

The results suggest the importance of training teachers in the use of TBLT in enhancing CLA in the classroom.
