Effects of proficiency and collaborative work on child EFL individual dictogloss writing. Research on EFL learning by young children in Spain, García Mayo, María del Pilar (ed.), pp. 246–2742021.
Collaborative writing has been traditionally studied in terms of language-related episodes (LREs), which have been shown to be influenced by learner proficiency. Yet, the impact of collaboration on the written product has received less attention, especially regarding child EFL learners. Our study… read more | Article
Editorial: Research on EFL learning by young children in Spain. Research on EFL learning by young children in Spain, García Mayo, María del Pilar (ed.), pp. 181–1882021.
The effect of task repetition on the patterns of interaction of ESL children. ITL - International Journal of Applied Linguistics 171:1, pp. 90–1122020.
Research on collaborative work has explored the benefits of task repetition (TR) for L2 development. TR has been claimed to improve L2 complexity, accuracy and fluency, provide opportunities for feedback, and increase learners’ engagement in their L2, as reported in studies that have explored… read more | Article
Chapter 1. Child EFL grammar learning through a collaborative writing task. Languaging in Language Learning and Teaching: A collection of empirical studies, Suzuki, Wataru and Neomy Storch (eds.), pp. 19–402020.
The present study analyzed the effects of completing a dictogloss task on the development of English grammar (3rd person singular -s and articles) in a foreign language primary school context. Fifty 11–12 year-old elementary EFL Spanish learners worked on a dictogloss task individually, and in… read more | Chapter
Child EFL learners’ attitudes towards a collaborative writing task: An exploratory study. Language Teaching for Young Learners 2:1, pp. 52–722020.
The way learners engage with tasks can crucially impact on learning opportunities and, therefore, more attention is now being devoted to task affect. This study examines the attitudes of an underresearched population, child EFL learners, towards a collaborative dictogloss task. Thirty-two Spanish… read more | Article
Collaborative writing and feedback: An exploratory study of the potential of models in primary EFL students’ writing performance. Language Teaching for Young Learners 2:1, pp. 73–1002020.
Research on collaborative writing and models as a form of written corrective feedback has been conducted with adult participants but research with children is scarce despite the growth of early EFL learning in school settings in the past twenty years. The aim of the present exploratory study was to… read more | Article
Chapter 8. Proficiency and transfer effects in the acquisition of gender agreement by L2 and L3 English learners. Meaning and Structure in Second Language Acquisition: In honor of Roumyana Slabakova, Cho, Jacee, Michael Iverson, Tiffany Judy, Tania Leal and Elena Shimanskaya (eds.), pp. 203–2272018.
The present study examines proficiency and transfer effects in the acquisition of gender agreement in third person singular possessives (his/her) by second (L2) and third language (L3) learners of English. Within current generative second language acquisition research, gender agreement has been… read more | Chapter
CLIL and SLA: Insights from an interactionist perspective. Applied Linguistics Perspectives on CLIL, Llinares, Ana and Tom Morton (eds.), pp. 33–502017.
The Interaction Hypothesis is one of the explanations for second language acquisition (SLA) (Hatch 1978; Long 1983). Numerous studies have shown that interaction facilitates SLA because learners have the opportunity to negotiate language input, receive feedback and modify their output (Long 1996;… read more | Article
Chapter 7. Transfer effects in the acquisition of double object constructions in English as an L3. L3 Syntactic Transfer: Models, new developments and implications, Angelovska, Tanja and Angela Hahn (eds.), pp. 143–1712017.
The present study examines the role of transfer in the processing of double object constructions (DOC) in English as a third language (L3). A group of Basque/Spanish bilinguals and a group of Spanish speakers divided into three proficiency levels completed a self-paced reading task. Findings did… read more | Chapter
Chapter 3. Testing the current models of third language acquisition. L3 Syntactic Transfer: Models, new developments and implications, Angelovska, Tanja and Angela Hahn (eds.), pp. 63–842017.
In this chapter, we argue that another factor should be brought into the general picture of third and additional language acquisition: the comprehensible linguistic input. Predictions of current models have been predominantly based on the cognitive-psychological prominence of the three languages… read more | Chapter
9. EFL task-based interaction: Does task modality impact on language-related episodes?. Peer Interaction and Second Language Learning: Pedagogical potential and research agenda, Sato, Masatoshi and Susan Ballinger (eds.), pp. 241–2662016.
Research on L2 interaction has shown that task modality (written vs. oral) influences language learning opportunities. However, most research has been carried out in ESL settings and few studies have investigated task modality differences in EFL contexts, where both quantity and quality of exposure… read more | Article
2. Language-related episodes during collaborative tasks: A comparison of CLIL and EFL learners. Second Language Interaction in Diverse Educational Contexts, McDonough, Kim and Alison Mackey (eds.), pp. 25–442013.
Recent research in different educational settings has provided support for the use of collaborative tasks in which learners consciously reflect on their own language (i.e., produce language-related episodes or LREs). However, little is known about whether learners in… read more | Chapter
Introduction. Contemporary Approaches to Second Language Acquisition, García Mayo, María del Pilar, María Juncal Gutiérrez Mangado and María Martínez-Adrián (eds.), pp. 1–42013.
. Linguistic Approaches to Bilingualism 3:4, pp. 415–4472013.
This study investigates knowledge of the nominal agreement domain in L3 English by Basque/Spanish bilinguals. Gender agreement has been claimed to be an interpretable feature in English and could be claimed to be so for Basque, whereas Spanish shows uninterpretable gender agreement. Under current… read more | Article
Chapter 8. Investigating L2 spoken syntax: A Usage-based perspective. Contemporary Approaches to Second Language Acquisition, García Mayo, María del Pilar, María Juncal Gutiérrez Mangado and María Martínez-Adrián (eds.), pp. 153–1762013.
This chapter explores the implications and applications of research into native spoken language in the context of second language learning and use. Spoken language structures differ in fundamental ways from those of written language and require to be analysed on their own terms. The chapter… read more | Chapter

This chapter addresses the issue of how unplanned focus on formis accomplished in an English as a foreign language (EFL) classroom and its effect on adolescents’ learning outcomes. The findings support previous research indicating that adolescents benefit from interaction in foreign language… read more | Article
Awareness of orthographic form and morphophonemic learning in EFL. Languages and Cultures in Contrast and Comparison, Gómez González, María de los Ángeles, J. Lachlan Mackenzie and Elsa M. González Álvarez (eds.), pp. 299–3262008.
There is a growing body of evidence that form-focused instruction (FFI) promotes second language learning, specifically when it raises learners’ awareness of linguistic form (Ellis 2001). However, very few studies of phonological acquisition have been performed to date within a FFI framework. This… read more | Article
