This innovative book examines the relationship between foreign (L2) language acquisition and task-based learning from an output perspective, with a concentration on the learner's discourse and retrospection. Author Cynthia Lee explores this issue in an experimental context; with particular reference to Hong Kong Chinese tertiary learners of English. Lee's study contributes to research on L2 acquisition and casts light on task-based learning and pedagogy in Hong Kong classrooms and beyond. English language teaching practitioners, researchers, and applied linguists will find special value in this book.Female native speakers sought clarification in ways which provided male non- native speakers with opportunities for production of more comprehensible output: because the males introduced new but relevant topics in the discussion task.
