A Language-Teaching Machine: Input, Uptake, and Output in the Communicative Classroom.
Jones, Francis R.
System, v20 n2 p133-50 May 1992
In two foreign language lessons with substantial amounts of undirected student-student talk, postlesson protocols were used to compare learner uptake from teacher and from peers. It is suggested that the validity of free-communication activities in the typical proficiency streamlined foreign language class lies not so much in the peer input they supply as in the interactive output they generate.
