    Researchers have distinguished between “focus on forms” and “focus on form” (Doughty ) in second language instruction. “Focus on forms” is the deliberate teaching of grammar in order to produce understanding of the grammar, in the hope that understanding alone will allow the language learner to use the form correctly.   This chapter explores the potential of communicative tasks with a developmentally moderated focus on form to promote the acquisition of grammatical features in the EFL classroom. Task-based language teaching in combination with a focus on form is discussed as a methodological approach that can provide learners who are developmentally ready to acquire a structure with .

Established by Michael Long, a professor of Second Language Acquisition, the major inspiration behind the focus on form method is the weaknesses inherent in the other two popular methods.
