Online Chatting: An Alternative Approach to Simulations.
Freiermuth, Mark R.
Simulation & Gaming, v33 n2 p187-95 Jun 2002
Considers online Internet chatting as a means to resolve simulation tasks in lieu of face-to-face negotiation and suggests that online chatting extends linguistic opportunities for participation in small-group settings while retaining the interactive qualities of spoken conversation. Concludes that language learners who are normally reluctant to speak in groups more readily participate online. (Author/LRW)
