A book-length exploration of the role of online chat in supporting
the teaching and learning of foreign languages is well overdue.
Tudini's new book takes a Conversation Analysis approach, which is
new to online Second Language Acquisition. It provides observable,
previously undocumented insights into how native speakers and
learners pursue the learning of foreign language and culture during
online text chat.It looks at dyadic chat between native speakers
and learners, with examples drawn from a corpus featuring 133
learners and 584 native speakers of Italian. This unique book
contributes to our understanding of how conversation in a foreign
language unfolds between native speakers and learners in an online
social environment, rather than in the classroom. It will be of
interest to researchers in second language acquisition and
conversation analysis, as well as language teachers.
