Abstract: English is the dominant communication language. Here lies the importance for English as a Foreign Language (EFL) students to become proficient in all its skills, mainly on the speaking one, since it will be the most used one in real-life situations. This article analyses the Task-Based Learning Approach (TBL), which emphasizes tasks and accurate communication, to help strengthen speaking skills. Using mixed methods, primarily qualitative instruments, the researcher compares student perceptions of online classes with a Task-Based Learning Approach in contrast with a traditional, book-guided online class. After analysing the collected data from the chosen 150-student sample, conclusions, and recommendations of the implementation of this approach will finish this academic article.
