The incorporation of Facebook and the implementation of project-based learning (PBL) pedagogy in language teaching and learning are not new. However, most studies tend to look at each element as separate entities. My research will combine both Facebook and PBL in an attempt to explore their use for improving English language education in Indonesia. Using qualitative methods, I aim to examine: (a) to what extent PBL on Facebook can facilitate informal language learning; and (b) students’ behaviours, interactions and perceptions. This study will potentially benefit my participants, other language learners, and inform future language education practices.
