Keywords:Authentic Material, GTM, Rural Areas Teachers, TBLT
The focus of this study is to examine the challenges that English language teachers encounter when using Task-Based Language Teaching (TBLT) in rural areas. The research utilized observations and interviews as data collection methods. Additionally, the study discovered that students are unfamiliar with TBLT and find it challenging to adapt since they have been taught using the Grammar Translation Method (GTM) since their initial days in school. The study aims to help English teachers overcome their limitations when implementing TBLT by assisting them in overcoming the barriers. It also provides new avenues for further research that can assist future researchers. The findings indicate that English teachers face numerous obstacles due to insufficient training in TBLT and the disparity between the TBLT approach and the examination system used by the Punjab Boards. The study suggests that the government should arrange training for teachers at all levels to support them in effectively using TBLT.
