- This survey aims to find the problems of task design in graduate English textbooks. 630 directions of tasks are collected from two textbooks. The analysis shows that the main problems are as follows: first, design concept are based on language knowledge to ignore language application ability; second, design objective stresses language forms more than language meanings; third, design contents stress language knowledge more than humanistic quality; forth, design goal stress individual-skill tasks more than integrated ones, fifth, present forms of tasks are simple, mainly words without the use of pictures, audio and video materials.
