CONCLUSION  Task-based syllabuses are constructed with varieties of tasks as the basic blocks, focusing on using the target language in real world rather than drilling on the isolate grammatical items. In making practical decisions about task-based syllabus design, one must consider all the possible factors that might affect the teach ability of the syllabus. Adjusting the choice and integrating the different types according to learners’ needs.
