We are very proud to present the very first issue of Task. Journal on task-based language teaching and learning. It is an international refereed journal dedicated to promoting and disseminating scholarship and research in the field of Task-Based Language Teaching (TBLT) and learning. In this preface, we will briefly describe the history that led to this journal, define what we mean by task-based language teaching and learning, and describe the main ambitions we as editors have with this journal. We will also reflect on the different types of articles the journal will welcome, and present the articles in this inaugural issue.
