With reference to the Cognition Hypothesis, pedagogical tasks should be designed on the basis of task complexity (cognitive factors). Task-based studies have been predominantly concerned with the effect of manipulating task complexity on learners’ language performance in terms of complexity, accuracy, and fluency (CAF).Very few studies have investigated learners’ affective factors with respect to the implementation of task complexity. This study aimed at exploring learners’ in-depth perceptions of four types of task complexity. The subjects of the current study were 90 students of English Department, Lampung University, Indonesia. Interview was used to collect the learners’ perceptions.The findings of the current study indicate that aspects other than task complexity (cognitive factors) are also required as bases for designing pedagogical tasks in language teaching. The results of this study inform researchers, EFL teachers, and syllabus designers a framework for holistic task design. Keywords: pedagogical task, task complexity, learners’ perception,
