Ubiquitous computing technologies have traditionally\ud striven to augment objects and the environment with\ud sensing capabilities to enable them to respond appropriately\ud to the needs of the individuals in the environment.\ud This paper considers how such technologies might be\ud harnessed to support language learning, and specifically\ud Task-Based Learning (TBL). Task-Based Learning\ud (TBL) involves doing meaningful tasks in a foreign language,\ud emphasising the language’s use in practice. TBL\ud is seen as a highly engaging and motivating approach to\ud learning a language, but is difficult to do in the classroom.\ud Here, learners typically engage in activities that\ud only simulate ‘real-world’ tasks, and as such only rehearse\ud language use, rather than applying the language in\ud practice. In this paper, we explore how an instrumented,\ud context-aware environment whose design is grounded in\ud pedagogical principles can support TBL. We present the\ud French Kitchen, an instrumented kitchen for English\ud speakers who are learning French, and describe a 46-\ud participant evaluation of the kitchen. Based on the evaluation,\ud we provide a set of design recommendations for\ud those building instrumented systems for TBL.
