Challenges in Conducting Classroom-Based Research in EFL Settings

    Golda J. Tulung


This article reports on methodological issues faced in carrying out a classroom-based study in an English as a foreign language (EFL) setting in an Indonesian university that may have relevance for other planning studies in similar settings. The study investigated the pedagogical value of communicative tasks in an EFL setting. Within the topic of how communicative tasks might be used to generate interactive discourse among adult English students in a foreign language classroom, it examined the oral discourse of such students and their teacher during selected communicative tasks. This article describes the study, including its background, research design, context and research procedures. It then focuses on the challenges faced during data collection and how they were dealt with, and concludes with some lessons learned about carrying out classroom-based research in EFL contexts.

Keywords: Classroom-based research, EFL setting, communicative tasks
