10 pagesPublished: February 23, 2017

Abstract

The goal of this paper is to analyze some of the issues related to task design in Russian on the basis of a pilot study carried out with 19 bilingual Catalan- and Spanish-speaking participants. They performed six form-focused tasks targeted at the use of case forms and verbs of movement in Russian. Although some problems in task design were detected, t-test showed that learners improved significantly in the use of the target forms.

Keyphrases: Focus on form, Russian as a foreign language, task complexity, task design, task-based language teaching
