Farnaz Latif, Mahdieh Shafipoor

Abstract


Teaching General English, as a fundamental course in all the non-English majors, at universities in Iran has constantly been considered vital among the scholars' concerns. Thus, the TEFL researchers have always attempted to study and analyze the currently practice teaching methodologies at different levels in order to introduce the most efficient ones to the practitioners in the field. Therefore, to improve the quality and efficiency of teaching general English at universities, the researchers in the present study have tried to explore the currently practiced general English teaching methodologies for engineering students in Islamic Azad University, Yadegar-e Emam Khomeini (RAH) Shahre Rey Branch. In other words, they have attempted to reflect on a comparative study of two globally popular teaching methodologies namely; Task-based and Task- supported at this university to present the more efficient one to the target community.
