This chapter explores the potential of communicative tasks with a developmentally moderated focus on form to promote the acquisition of grammatical features in the EFL classroom. Task-based language teaching in combination with a focus on form is discussed as a methodological approach that can provide learners who are developmentally ready to acquire a structure with opportunities to use it spontaneously and productively in different contexts. Examples of task-based interactions between German learners of English at different levels of acquisition will be presented that illustrate how such tasks can be used to stimulate the acquisition process in the classroom.
