Although substantial research has examined how teachers respond to students' linguistic errors, the motivational influence of feedback practices in foreign language education has received relatively little attention. Drawing on recent feedback theories of educational assessment (e.g., Hattie & Timperley, 2007; Carless, 2017) and second…

Gong, Zhiqi – Applied Language Learning, 2020
Learning a second language (L2) is not merely mastering an additional linguistic system, but rather learning a new way of conceptualizing the world. Grammatical development does not always align simultaneously with conceptual development in L2. That explains why L2 learners may produce sentences that are grammatically correct, but pragmatically…

Tang, Xiaofei – Applied Language Learning, 2019
Digital technology has great potential for second language (L2) pragmatics learning as it creates communicative contexts for learners to practice L2s. However, despite the growing interest in technology enhanced learning, the efficacy of using technology on L2 pragmatics remains unknown. This paper examines the role of technology in L2 pragmatics…

Kitajima, Ryu – Applied Language Learning, 2018
The field of L2 pragmatics demonstrates the effect of instructional intervention on the development of L2 learners' pragmatic competence. Nevertheless, effective instruction requires knowledge of pragmatic performances of L2 learners in naturally occurring conversations, in comparison to those of the target community speakers. This study, using a…
