Title: Language Learning and Teaching as Social Inter-action
Edited By: Zhu Hua
Paul Seedhouse
Wei Li
Vivian James Cook
Description:

This volume brings together contributions by some of the crucial people
involved in developing the social interactional and socio-cultural
approaches to language teaching and learning. They provide not only an
introduction to this important growth point, but also an overview of
cutting-edge research. A wide range of language learning and teaching
contexts are covered, including TESOL, European and non-European languages,
and bilingual and multilingual practices. The contributors aim to
demonstrate the importance for second language learning and teaching of the
social interactional and socio-cultural perspective, describe the
implications of these perspectives for the practice of language teaching,
including teacher education, and to outline interdiscilinary links between
these approaches to language learning and others, such as the social
constructivist approach.
