Alternative Approaches to Second Language Acquisition (2011) pp. 24-47 Published by Routledge
The sociocultural theory is grounded in the psychological theory of human consciousness (L.S. Vygotsky). The focus of the chapter is on SCT-L2 research relating to adult SLA. It places mediation, either by other or self at the core of SL development and use. SCT-L2 argues for the pedagogical relevance of explicit and rigorous linguistic explanation,, since SLA acquisition is not a universal process, as opposed to first language acquisition.
