In the era of globalization, graduates strive to equip with not only hard skills in their professional field, but also the soft skills, one of which is the ability to communicate in different languages. Universities play a significant role in producing graduates that meet the job market requirements, which ultimately enables them to compete globally. Nowadays, technical subjects, also known as workforce-related subjects are taught in English to the undergraduates. By offering the technical subjects in English, it is intended to create more opportunities for English usage among the undergraduates. Task-based Learning is a method that provides students with the natural context to communicate in the target language. As the students work to solve the task, they gain opportunities to talk, and such interaction is part of the language acquisition where students put an effort in understanding the group and expressing their ideas.
