Conversation Analysis and Second Language Acquisition

Taiane Malabarba

PULS

The field of Second Language Acquisition (SLA) has undergone a bifurcation in the past decades. This movement, widely known as the Social Turn (Block, 2003), fostered the appearance of alternative interactional usage-based approaches that question some of the main methods and concepts of mainstream SLA research. One of such approaches is Conversation Analysis (CA). In this course, we will explore the potentials of CA-SLA as a field of inquiry as well as the affordances and constraints of taking a CA-approach to language learning and teaching. In order to do that, we will start off by looking at the details of real-world talk-in-interaction in an array of settings where English is spoken as a foreign language including (but not limited to) the language classroom. We will then discuss some pedagogical initiatives (e.g. “Language learning in the wild”) and materials stemming from the field of CA-SLA and their implications for language learning and teaching. The course is designed to bridge SLA theory and practice through hands-on analysis of real-life data and learning tools. Through participation in a range of theoretical discussions and practical activities, students will:

- develop a deeper understanding of L2 English learning and teaching research in light of current discussions within the field of CA-SLA
- develop a broad understanding of the research questions that social approaches to L2 language learning and teaching investigate
- be able to establish links between theory and practice as well as between their own teaching contexts and other learning settings around the globe
- make theoretically-informed analyses of learning tools available in the ever-changing contemporary world.
