Usage-inspired L2 instruction
Some reflections and a heuristic
The work gathered in this collection suggests that usage-inspired second language (L2) instruction is beginning to take hold in instructed second language acquisition (SLA) and has a bright future as a researched pedagogy in support of adult L2 learning and multilingualism. In this closing chapter, we offer our personal reflections on the study of usage-inspired L2 instruction as a new research domain within instructed SLA. We also propose four broad criteria by which one might be able to judge the degree to which a particular instructional proposal is usage-inspired, related to meaningfulness, contextualization, prior knowledge, and learning goals and mechanisms.
