In addition to speaking, teachers can ask students practice writing a topic related to the listening. Thus, combining those skills will help prepare students for listening situations in real life where several skills often need to be used simultaneously. Harmer (2007) suggests “live listening” can be applied for listening lesson instead of using audio material story-telling, interviews, and conversations.

There are times when the language educators have to be creative in the classroom and attract students to learn English in a fun way such as through TBL activities like role play, listening to the music, watching movie, reading comprehension activities and many more. Through these interactions that students encounter in TBL activities, their confidence level will develop as well as increase their level of motivation towards the language (Wei & Habibah, 2011). Furthermore, Breen (1987:23) (as cited in Zhao, 2011), defines task-based learning as “any structured language learning endeavour which has a particular objective, appropriate content, a specified working procedure, and a range of outcomes for those who undertake the task”.

Gardner (2007) emphasis the importance of motivation in different stages of second language acquisition. As a teacher, the primarily job of a teacher is to encourage students, to get them involved and to offer incentives.
