Abstract

This paper aims to examine the efficacy of the Task-Based Language Teaching (TBLT) methodology with Corrective Guidance (CF) in improving the fluency and accuracy of Malaysia EFL learners. The research used a hybrid analysis approach using caste experiments and pre-test-post-test configurations.  The case study portion picked only 3 participants, while the pre-test-post-test configuration has a total of 44 participants. Features of the results revealed that using TBLT is an efficient teaching approach to improving Malaysia EFL learners ' speech fluency and accuracy as demonstrated by their increased speech automaticity, grammatical language accuracy, and higher word count protocol.  Meanwhile, after introducing TBLT action, the awareness and behaviour of EFL learners towards speaking improved significantly.  This paper suggests that while the TBLT approach helps EFL learners, there is a greater chance of improving their fluency and speech accuracy. This means that the TBLT approach is considered an effective student-centered teaching tool to improve their communicative abilities, enabling EFL learners to communicate in real-world language applications. This research explores TBLT's effects of language education.
