Please note: This is a new edition of a previously announced text.

A book-length exploration of the role of online chat in supporting the teaching
and learning of foreign languages is well overdue. Tudini's new book takes a
Conversation Analysis approach, which is new to online Second Language
Acquisition. It provides observable, previously undocumented insights into
how native speakers and learners pursue the learning of foreign language and
culture during online text chat.

It looks at dyadic chat between native speakers and learners, with examples
drawn from a corpus featuring 133 learners and 584 native speakers of
Italian. This unique book contributes to our understanding of how
conversation in a foreign language unfolds between native speakers and
learners in an online social environment, rather than in the classroom.

It will be of interest to researchers in second language acquisition and
conversation analysis, as well as language teachers.

"This book pushes research on computer-mediated language learning into
new directions. It argues that engaging in web-based chat with native
speakers provides opportunities for sustained language learning. Vincenza
Tudini uses Conversation Analysis techniques to present a detailed and well-
argued analysis which demonstrates where opportunities for learning are to be
found in chat and how such interactions contribute to learning. This book is
an important contribution both for those interested in the use of technology in
language education and for those who wish to use microanalysis of
interaction to understand processes of acquisition." Tony Liddicoat, Professor
in Applied Linguistics, University of South Australia, Australia
