Language Skills Interaction in Equal and Unequal Power Speech Exchange Systems more
Sat, Nov 13, 12:45-13:45 Asia/Tokyo
The interactional skills of Japanese university students were examined using conversation analysis (CA). Data was gathered from teacher-fronted interaction and student-student group discussion. Results showed that students used a more diverse array of interactional skills when the teacher was not involved. This poster presentation will demonstrate how an equal power speech exchange system can be an enabling environment for developing interactional competence.
