Despite the efficacy of task-based language teaching (TBLT), foreign language educators face many challenges in implementing TBLT, which may lead to it being largely underutilized. This chapter describes a pedagogical framework for introducing task-based language instruction to future teachers of foreign languages. Task-based teaching is demonstrated through a Russian language lesson that introduces the Cyrillic alphabet to beginners. This puts future language teachers in the learner position, allowing them to experience the thrill of language learning in a well-scaffolded task-based classroom.
